Christy Ulmet, a multimedia journalism major from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, has been accepted by the CCCU Washington Journalism Center. Ulmet, who will be a rising junior in May 2014, plans to spend the fall-2014 semester at the Center.
During her two years at Trevecca, Ulmet has used her interest in writing in a variety of campus jobs. During both years she has served on the staff of the student newspaper, the TrevEchoes: one year as photographer and this year as a staff writer. Last year she wrote for Trevecca’s social justice publication, Micah Mandate. Additionally, she is a ”TreveccaLive” blogger and writes for Trevecca’s Office of Marketing and Communications.
“Christy is a talented young journalism student who will now get the chance to intern in a D.C. newsroom while studying alongside other student journalists from Christian colleges around the nation. This opportunity is a great one for her to gain skills and experience and continue discerning her calling to journalism,” stated JoEllen Werking Weedman, Trevecca journalism instructor.
The CCCU Washington Journalism Center provides a semester’s training for journalism students in Washington, D.C., that “that will cultivate professional news skills and encourage students to think through the implications of being a Christian working in the news media in a city that is home to the powerful and the powerless.”
