The Hauberk had been nationally recognized before under Donna Skates, an adviser in the mid-90s. But since Tate's arrival in 2003, The Hauberk also shot back into the national circuit with Pacemaker and Interactive Yearbook Pacemaker nominations for successive years. In the spring of 2006, the Kansas Scholastic Press Association named The Hauberk's 2005-2006 assistant editor, Allison Quick, the Kansas High School Journalist of the Year.
