Class of 2021: Tayler Shaw

May 4, 2021

When she first arrived at CU Boulder from her nearby hometown of Littleton, Tayler Shaw was deeply shy. She overcame that fear by taking journalism classes, which forced her to talk to strangers and showed her the beauty in sharing their stories. Now a senior, Shaw is well known as a student leader in the college. With majors in both Journalism and Spanish for the Professions, along with minors in Leadership Studies and Anthropology, Shaw is the Department of Journalism’s William W. White Outstanding Senior.

ProPublica’s 10-part series “The NYPD Files” is a searing investigation into how the country’s largest police department maintains impunity from public oversight and the toll that impunity takes on the city’s civilians––especially those who are marginalized and most at risk. The series is the winner of this year’s Al Nakkula Award for police reporting, co-sponsored by The Denver Press Club and CMCI.
