Carolina Covenant Scholar Patsy Montesinos ’21 was named one of five ProPublica Emerging Reporters for the 2019–2020 school year. In its fifth year, the nonprofit newsroom’s program, which aims to lower barriers to investigative journalism for college journalists from diverse backgrounds, gave Montesinos three days to network and learn from reporters in their native habitat: newsrooms at The New York Times, Buzzfeed, WNYC and ProPublica. The program also paired Montesinos with ProPublica’s Emmy Award and Edward R. Murrow award-winning filmmaker and journalist Katie Campbell, providing the Hussman junior with $9,000 in seed money to produce a video on immigration and family dynamics which she pitched last fall and plans to finish this summer under Campbell’s tutelage. As a ProPublica Emerging Reporter, Montesinos will also have the opportunity to attend the 2020 NICAR Conference devoted to data journalism this March in New Orleans.
