Three student leaders of The Pendulum, Elon University’s daily newsgathering organization, will attend the College Media Association conference March 9-12, 2013, in New York, where they will attend educational workshops and network with media professionals.
Students in attendance will be:
- Jonathan Black, managing editor
- Mary Kate Brogan, social media editor
- Alison Ryncarz, Edge editor
Pendulum adviser Colin Donohue will also be in attendance.
In addition to attending workshops and sessions led by professionals from the media world and faculty members from communications schools nationwide, students will also network, take tours of media organizations around the city and have The Pendulum professionally critiqued.
Students have submitted their work for Apple Awards and will learn the results of the contest on Tuesday.
