When two opportunities meet, good things
The final product was published January 22nd in The Pantagraph.
The assistance from the McLean County Diversity Project scholar helped me to focus on the people I needed to talk to and start writing the stories much earlier than I would have without Chad’s help.
I should note that this is the third time The Pantagraph has teamed up with the McLean County Diversity Project.
In the past, I have worked with scholars on a series that explored how LGBT students are treated at school and a second project during Mental Health Awareness month produced educational materials on mental illness.
As a journalist, I appreciate the willingness of the McLean County Diversity Project scholars to roll up their sleeves and dive into a story.
We all learn something in the process.
