Reporting students have
work published in daily


Articles written by 13 School of Communications students were featured on Page A1 and in a two-page spread in the Sunday, Oct. 3 edition of the Burlington Times-News, the only daily newspaper in Alamance County.

The students' articles were part of a civic journalism project for JCM 300, "Reporting for the Public Good," taught by Janna Anderson, an assistant professor of communications. The articles preview an Oct. 8 forum hosted by the Elon University Center for Environmental Studies titled "Roadmap to the Future: Tomorrow by Design." The articles examine a wide variety of topics that will be discussed during the forum and their relevance to the local community, including organic farming and foods, alternative-fuel vehicles, living a sustainable lifestyle, recycling and long-term environmental planning.

Through an arrangement with the Times-News, the Reporting students will also file stories on election night in November and will produce business-news features that will be run in the special Times-News Progress edition in February.

The top three editors at the Times-News, Lee Barnes, Jay Ashley and Brent Lancaster, met with the Elon students at the beginning of the fall semester to help them map out their reporting strategies for these professional newswriting assignments.

Students who contributed articles for the Times-News environmental issues package include: Ashley Feibish; Courtney Linn; Rasmi Gamble; Jacquie Anderson; Jacob Potter; Laura Somerville; Cheryl Williams; Andrew High; Bettina Johnson; Carrie Morgan; R.J. Fenn; Scott Myrick; David Douglas.

The articles can be downloaded as PDFs by subscribers to the Times-News site:
