Students prepare for Zambia

Winter intersession is drawing near and the cold days and icy roads are almost upon us. But 18 Ohio University students from three schools in the Scripps College of Communication have a Plan B this winter intersession. They are preparing for their trip to Zambia, Southern Africa. They will escape the wintry blizzards, below freezing wind gusts, and the daily shoveling of 2-feet of snow, to enjoy some amazing African summer flora and fauna, outdoor swimming, and hiking in the jungles. Participants will depart for Zambia on November 25, a day after Thanksgiving and return on December 22, 2011.

Meet new PhD student Clay Carey

Clay Carey is a native of Tennessee who, before enrolling in Ohio University for his master’s degree, worked as a correspondent for USA Today and edited and wrote for newspapers including The Nashville Tennessean. His investigative and other reporting skills have earned him SPJ and and Tennessee Press awards. He places a premium on community and giving back to it, which he has done in his professional work and continues to do so even while working toward his doctoral degree.

As the assistant director for the E.W. Scripps High School Journalism Workshop, Carey is able to do something he enjoys the most: work with young people. Harnessing students’ enthusiasm for journalism projects was an interest even in his pre-graduate-school life, when as an editor he helped a school establish a student-run newspaper.

Meet new PhD student Paul Jacoway

Paul Jacoway is an Akron, Ohio, native with degrees from the University of Akron and Kent State University. He also carries a certification from Diablo Valley College in California in television arts and visual communication. Jacoway describes himself as having been a non-traditional student from the start, but he can be more significantly characterized by the level of involvement and the pride he takes in his area of focus, documentary film production.

Jacoway’s film-making interests span all stages of the process, from writing and research to filming and editing the final piece. In fact, he prefers to individually create his projects from start to finish and maintain creative control of the results.

Meet new PhD student Yizi Zhang

Yizi Zhang is a former journalist and media officer of Greenpeace China, with degrees from the University of Leeds and the Tianjin University of Technology. Zhang’s quest for answers to questions — both professionally and personally — is unhindered by the risk of discomfort.

While working as a journalist and editor (Morning Post and Tianjin Daily) in Tianjin, near Beijing, she posed as a patient at a drug rehab center as a way to gain an understanding of the patients’ state of mind during their treatment to uncover psychological elements of drug addiction.
