On June 16, four former Gazette journalists who have gone their separate ways came together in Colorado Spring and took to the University of Colorado Coloardo Springs stage in event meant to celebrate 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer.
They discussed the months and months of work behind The Gazette's two Pulitzer Prize-winning stories — the 1990 feature, “Adam and Megan,” and the 2014 series, “Other Than Honorable.”
They lamented heart-wrenching moments in the process. They shared insights they learned about the job, about their subjects and about each other. And they showed the power that good journalism can have in people’s lives and their community.

The event was presented by The Gazette and UCCS, in partnership with the Colorado Press Association, The Denver Post and the Colorado Chapter of Society of Professional Journalists.
