Workshop founder Charles Lewis was honored Tuesday with the prestigious Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism.

Faculty members of the Missouri School of Journalism recognized Lewis for his "pursuit of investigative journalism that relentlessly seeks out the truth for citizens.”

Lewis traveled to Missouri to accept the award and gave a lecture on investigating power in the new journalism ecosystem. He was one of five journalists honored Tuesday.

The award committee cited Lewis’ work in creating The Center for Public Integrity, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and several other nonprofit investigative news organizations.

The other four journalists who received the medal this year are Carol Guzy, staff photographer at The Washington Post; Michael Golden, vice chairman of The New York Times; Greg Lee, sports editor at the South Florida Sun Sentinel; and Aye Aye Win, Myanmar correspondent for The Associated Press.

The Missouri journalism school has presented the Medal of Honor since 1930. Past recipients include Tom Brokaw, Christiane Amanpour and Gloria Steinem.
