Carolina Covenant Scholar Patsy Montesinos ’21 has been named one of five 2019-20 ProPublica Emerging Reporters.
ProPublica Emerging Reporters is an independent nonprofit newsroom program that aims to lower barriers to investigative journalism for college journalists from diverse backgrounds.
Montesinos was given three days to network and learn from reporters in their native habitat of newsrooms at The New York Times, Buzzfeed, WNYC and ProPublica.
“When I saw this opportunity at ProPublica, Patsy was one of the first students who came to mind,” said Kate Sheppard, a teaching associate professor at the Hussman School and senior enterprise editor at the Huffington Post. “She had done tremendous work as part of our international projects course last spring and has shown promise on long-form investigative and narrative work.”
