  • The inside story behind Preston Gannaway's Pulitzer Prize

    Like much of the journalism we do, the St. Pierre project required that members of the community trust in our ability to tell an important human story. As we at the Monitor celebrate this historic moment for the newspaper, we also recognize our debt to the spirit of Carolynne St. Pierre and to Rich and his family. They have our deepest gratitude. Gannaway’s winning Pulitzer entry included 19 of the photographs we published last year. The photos are candid, beautiful, intimate, heart-wrenching and sensitive. Five are reprinted in today’s paper, and readers can see a multimedia presentation of the project and read Conaboy’s fine stories at The photo entry sent to the Pulitzer Prize board is also available on the site.
