RMU Journalism Students Cover President Obama’s Pittsburgh Visit
Robert Morris University applied journalism sophomores Leah Fleischel, Haley Sawyer, and Paul Wintruba are getting some hands-on experience today as they cover President Obama’s visit to the U.S. Steel Plant in Irwin.
During his Pittsburgh visit, President Obama is expected to stir up support to create a new retirement savings plan for workers, a subject that was a main subject in his State of the Union address last night. The work of the three Robert Morris students will appear on RMU Sentry Media as well as the Talk Radio News Service, which is headquartered in Washington, D.C.
“Leah, Haley, and Paul are all intelligent, energetic, and motivated young people,” said Dr. Anthony Moretti, an associate professor in RMU’s School of Communications and Information Systems. “I know their reporting and photography will be a key part of their developing professional portfolio.”
RMU strives to provide these types of out-of-the classroom learning experiences to its students, which are then documented on their Student Engagement Transcript, an official university document that serves as a companion to our students’ resumes and an official university endorsement of their leadership roles, community service hours, international study trips, internship experiences, and much more. ~
