On Monday, Oct 16, investigative journalist Hadas Thier was on campus to talk with multiple classes about journalistic storytelling. Thier’s visit was sponsored by the Pulitzer Center, which is an organization dedicate to promoting outstanding journalism. Thier is a Fellow with the Pulitzer Center for her work investigating the water contamination problems in Jackson, MS.
Benedictine is also part of a group of universities across the country that can nominate their own students for a chance at becoming a Pulitzer Fellow. The winner will work on their own initiated story about underserved communities, receive $3000 from Pulitzer and support with their project from journalists at Pulitzer. The application is open to any BenU student, regardless of their major.
