WORD Reporters at the Democratic National Convention

Three students who have been involved with my multimedia ethnic news reporting project funded by the FORD Foundation have received press credentials to report on the Democratic National Convention. New America Media helped with the press credentials and some funding for transportation and lodging. The College also promised financial help through the President’s 2008-2009 Student Engagement fund and I have a few bucks left from a FORD Foundation grant to contribute. And the students are kicking in some bucks also.

The three are Kisha Alllision,  Jacqueline Fernandez and Jonathan Mena. Allison and Mena reported on the New Hampshire Primaries. The three will be joining seven professional journalists.

Expect more postings on their direct involvement in this impending historical event.
