October chapter grants awarded

Congratulations to the Ithaca College chapter and the Maryland Pro chapter for receiving October’s Chapter Grants, each for $250.

Ithaca College is welcoming David Cay Johnston, a career investigative reporter with the likes of the San Jose Mercury, Detroit Free Press and the LA Times, to name a few. Johnston is also the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for work at The New York Times, an IRE Medal and the George Polk Award. He’ll meet with two classes at the college, speaking with them about investigative reporting and his experience as Investigative Reporters and Editors president. Johnston will also be present at a dinner with Ithaca chapter members before he gives a keynote presentation in the evening on Nov. 13.

The Maryland Pro chapter is hosting “The Benefits of a Diverse Newsroom” on Nov. 9. The workshop will bring the chapter together with two surrounding universities - Salisbury University and University of Maryland Eastern Shore. David Burns of the Maryland Pro chapter says the program will:

challenge all SPJ members to confront journalism’s dreadful past with regard to diversity in the workplace and freely discuss our industry’s present and future.

Congratulations to both chapters and we look forward to seeing a recap in pictures or video!
