​A group of School of Communications faculty members and students in the elondocs production program participated in UNC-TV’s spring fundraising drive March 1. The fundraiser was held in the public television network’s Research Triangle Park studio.

As part of their participation, the Elon University volunteers answered phones, processed pledge information, and took in more than $16,000 in donations for the statewide PBS member station. There was a friendly competition between the faculty members and the students to see which team would raise the highest average; the students captured a narrow victory.

Among the faculty members on hand were Associate Dean Don Grady, Associate Professor Naeemah Clark, and Assistant Professors Lucinda Austin, Vanessa Bravo, Gerald Gibson and Nicole Triche. The elondocs members in attendance included senior Tucker Jepsen, juniors Azurra Catucci, Katharine Milbradt and Rebekah Richin, and sophomores Lauren Duncan, Adam Hobson, Rachel Kading, Meredith Piatt and Hali Tauxe-Stewart.
