Two good things to report:
1. I am now a Knight Scholar! This scholarship will cover the cost of this summer’s class valued at $3400; selection was based on need. The Beijing Olympics program consists of two courses. Technically it’s two undergraduate courses (but that hasn’t stopped them from charging graduate class fees!). The two courses consist of a preparation class I’ll take in the spring titled International Sports Reporting and the second course will be the actual work done at the Beijing Olympics.
2. My 15 minutes of Emerson fame: I made it into the latest Marketing Communicator, Emerson’s Department of Marketing Communication’s newsletter. I present it on my blog with a slight cringe due to my quoted wordiness, but nonetheless, here it for your viewing pleasure:
The entire Marketing Communications department has shown enormous support for the 3 selected from the department to participate in the Beijing program. I’ve gotten personal emails from professors and the head of the department offering congratulations which I full-heartedly appreciate.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
