From SPJ: “The Mark of Excellence Awards deadline is January 26. With a few weeks to go, why not take time at the beginning of the semester or quarter to submit your work in a national contest from the Society of Professional Journalists?

This former Newsday Middle East bureau chief is a former student of mine who is an Adjunct Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and is also an assistant professor at NYU. I came across his keynote 2009 speech at the City University of New York Baccalaureate Commencement exercise while researching the Do Not Remove Any Documents!!! project. He told the assembled students and families and friends great war stories.

But I know of two he didn’t discuss about his experiences as an undergraduate student journalist who was paying his way through college with freelance fees earned at Newsday as well as with journalism scholarship and award money he had won. He often tipped me off so that I could clue other student journalists trying to jumpstart their careers while working their way through Hunter.

[It’s easy to say that he has contributed to the journalism experiences and careers of Hunter students more than many if any of my colleagues in D:F/M.]

All of his war stories – those told at the commencement and the two that I describe below – attest to his remarkable aplomb in the face of adversity.

The CUNY Job fair is just around the corner and I’m still slow publishing stuff. I whine. Anyway, below are the suggestions that I provided my students.
