Good Work Wednesdays

From the Cleveland SPJ newsletter:

Joe Toohey, a graduating senior majoring in communication and theatre arts, and minoring in political science, has been awarded John Carroll University’s “Meet the Press” Fellowship for 2010-11, the university announced Friday. Founded in memory of the late Tim Russert, who was a John Carroll graduate, the fellowship is a nine-month internship in the Washington, D.C. bureau of NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Toohey is from Mount Pleasant, Pa., outside of Pittsburgh, and has had an impressive collegiate career. He received the James Breslin Broadcasting Excellence Scholarship Award in 2009; he is a member of Lambda Pi Eta (the National Communications Honors Society); he has served as a volunteer with Shoes and Clothes for Kids as well as with the New Life Community; and he has been consistently on the John Carroll University Dean’s List since 2007.

Good work, Joe!

Good Work Wednesdays

Journalists are a cynical bunch and as such, we tend to focus on the negative. Well, here at “First Draft,” the Generation J committee members will be doing our part to encourage young journalists who excel in their craft. For the first Good Work Wednesdays post, we check in with writer Jaclyn Trop, who recently had a feature on the hunt for an eccentric identity thief published in The Boston Phoenix. Good work, Jaclyn!
