Two UL Lafayette journalism alumni, Jennifer Brown, '97, and Tiffany Segura, '12, will share in the Pulitzer Prize. The Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA) just won for local reporting. Both handled copy editing and page design for the five-part series “Tipping the Scales,” which helped lead to an amendment to the Louisiana Constitution requiring unanimous jury verdicts in criminal cases instead of a 10-2 split. This is Brown’s second Pulitzer—her first was in 2006 for The Times-Picayune’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina.
