That’s the best way I can think of to describe the Ted Scripps Leadership Institute – SPJ immersion.
You learn a lot about a lot, from what SPJ is and does to the psychology of leadership.
I’ll leave it at that, so as not to give away the curriculum from this coming weekend’s leadership session in Richmond, Va. I will be there as Region 2 director, sharing my SPJ experiences and wisdom.
Under the new “traveling” format for the Scripps Institute (coming to a region near you), the Richmond session will be heavy on Region 2 participants:
Christina Jackson from the Western Carolina University chapter
Keith Cannon from Greater Charlotte Pro
Jonathan Michels from North Carolina Pro
Melissa Burke from Delaware Pro
Amy Cherry from Delaware Pro
David Cabrera from the Salisbury University chapter
Minal Bopaiah from Washington, D.C., Pro
April Bethea from Greater Charlotte Pro
David Burns from Maryland Pro
Brett Hall from the University of Maryland chapter
Emily Schweich from the University of Maryland chapter
I am excited to spend some time with this Region 2 crew, several of whom I have met in person and electronically.
See you in Virginia.
