CTN JOURNALISM INTERNSHIP HONORS FOUNDER JOHN SICELOFF
In John’s honor, CTN created the John Siceloff Journalism internship in 2017 which has had 19 interns, some of whom were mentored by John’s colleague and friend, Julia Preston, former New York Times reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner.
The primary goal of the John Siceloff journalism internship is to provide an opportunity for students to gain professional experience while increasing their marketable skills. As members of the CTN communication team, interns play a vital role in disseminating information about CTN events and achievements on their campuses. In addition, interns enhance their skills of written communication and practice many marketable skills, such as the responsibility of meeting deadlines and checking sources, organization of materials, and time management. They work with a team to produce a product, and teamwork is an essential skill for almost any career.
