Kim Pewitt-Jones, Journalism lecturer, has been awarded a scholarship to the Society of Professional Journalistâ€™s National Ted Scripps Leadership Institute.
Named for Ted Scripps, grandson of the founder of The E.W. Scripps Company, the Ted Scripps Leadership Institute provides journalists with tools to make local SPJ chapters stronger and continues to build that network of support for leaders at the local level.
Funding is provided through the Scripps Howard Foundation by Ted's sons, Edward W. Scripps Jr. and William H. Scripps, as a way to honor their father's memory. The institute will be held June 1-3 in Indianapolis.
