Lea Jolan, Shippensburg University C/J Class of 2013

Senior Digital Media Producer, KPRC 2 an NBC affiliate in Houston, Texas


“When I got my first job, three months after graduating, it was as if I’d already had on the job training. It was an easy transition because of the thorough education, guidance, and training I received in the classroom and as a member of SUTV. Not only did I learn the fundamentals of journalism in the classroom, I gained real-life training as an active member of SUTV, I was also guided step-by-step on how to build a strong digital portfolio and resume and was prepared for interviewing after graduation. All of these things were a big factor in gaining employment so quickly after graduation. I owe how far I’ve come and how quickly I’ve advanced in my career to the education and preparation I received as a C/J student at Shippensburg University.”
