Wilmington, N.C. — In the last month, Wilmington Faith & Values (WilmingtonFAVS.com) Editor Amanda Greene has been honored twice for her work with the new website — first as a recipient of the 28th Annual YWCA Lower Cape Fear Women of Achievement Awards and also as a finalist in the 2013 Religion Newswriters Association Awards for Religion Reporting Excellence. Both awards commend her work with WilmingtonFAVS.com, a project Greene launched in April 2012. The site is one of five community faith news sites Religion News LLC launched in the last year, in partnership with Religion News Service, through the generosity of a grant from the Lilly Endowment.
