While working as the cops reporter for The Salt Lake Tribune in Utah, Jessica Schreifels Miller received a call that a Brigham Young University student claimed she was punished for honor code violations, following a report of sexual assault. That story led to a statewide investigation of BYU, and to the The Tribune’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting. Jessica, the former editor of Weber State University’s student newspaper, attended the Pulitzer ceremony in New York along with a team of staff from The Tribune.
