Alumni return to speak to freshmen

The freshmen class in the JSchool recently heard four alums speak about their careers. What they heard was simple: You are part of a tradition. Don’t blow it.

OK, their message was a little more nuanced, but in essence Cooper Jones (’00), Stephanie Busack (’05), Dan Farkas (’98) and Chelsea Hamilton (’06) told students in my J101 class that they have a responsibility to work hard, achieve and then give back. That’s the formula for making the JSchool a quality program.

When a student dies

Today the JSchool mourns the death of Lianne Vernell, a journalism student from Athens, Ohio. Lianne died on Monday in a Columbus hospital.

When we lose a student so suddenly we can’t help but realize that life is both precious and fragile. Lianne was known for her music, which will help us remember her. I will remember her lively performances in “Pippin” and “Little Women,” performed here in Athens in 2006 and 2007.
