by: Professor Valerie Whitney, Department of Mass Communications
Bethune-Cookman University student Sara Wilson will be among those heading to Miami in August for the annual National Association of Black Journalists Conference and Career Fair and she will not have to worry about paying the registration fee.
Wilson, a multimedia journalism student, was one of 16 college students chosen by Dow Jones News Fund this spring to receive free registrations to one of six journalism industry conferences this summer and fall through its Emerging Journalists Program. The NABJ conference, slated for Aug. 7 to 11, is expected to attract more than 3,000 attendees.
