Congratulations to Jacob Betzner, who is among the nine college students from across the nation taking part in an all-expenses reporting trip to Japan later this summer. The Roy W. Howard National Collegiate Reporting Competition is sponsored by the Scripps Howard Founcation.
Here’s the language from the foundation’s press release:
Betzner is a junior journalism and economics double major pursuing a certificate in East Asian studies at Ohio University. After returning from Japan, he will intern at News Radio 1020 KDKA in Pittsburgh. He has completed internships with the Observer-Reporter Newspaper and WJPA 95.3 FM/1450 AM in his hometown of Washington, Pa.
Last summer Betzner took part in the school’s study abroad program in Leipzig, Germany.
