Around Campus: Weekly Image – Pulitzer finalist at JACC

Corey Johnson, investigative reporter for California Watch, delivers the keynote address to students at the Journalism Association of Community Colleges  (JACC) northern California conference on Sept. 22, 2012. Johnson was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his piece “On Shaky Ground,” an expose on widespread negligence by the state of California in making public school buildings safe in the event of earthquakes. Johnson urged attended to put principles first. “You are our future,” Johnson said as he ended his speech. “If you welcome and accept that responsibility, that you be that person, then the American people will be smarter, better and will live in a brighter day.”
