“The Bridge” is Recruiting Editors for 2016-2017.

By Faculty Advisor Tony Greiner|April 7, 2016Cascade, News, Rock Creek, Southeast, Sylvania|

PCC’s student newspaper, The Bridge is recruiting editors for the 2016-2017 academic year.  This is a great opportunity to have interesting work, meet fun people, report on stories that won’t appear elsewhere, and contribute to the life of Portland Community College.

The Bridge has been growing and improving since it was brought back into existence by ASPCC three years ago.  It won a 2d place award at last year’s Pacific Northwest Journalism Educators Association contest, and has submitted nominations for awards in 10 different categories for this year.  This year saw the return, after an 11 year gap, of a print edition.

Aside from reporting on college events, The Bridge has run stories that you won’t see elsewhere, such as the former PCC faculty member charged with murder, the problem of fecal bacteria in the hand-dryers, living as a homeless person in Portland (our prize winner), and the controversy among some staff members over Whiteness History Month.

To be eligible, you need to be taking at least 6 credit hours, have a 2.5 grade point average, and intend to be at PCC for the Fall, Winter and Spring terms of 2016-2017.  The job is for five hours a week, at the rate of $9.75 an hour.  Applications are online, and must be received by 22 April, by 3 pm.

About Faculty Advisor Tony Greiner

As faculty advisor, I see my primary role as helping the editorial staff navigate PCCs policies and procedures. Although I am not a journalist, I do have some chops and experience as a writer, with a dozen or so articles and a book and a half (one was co­written) to my credit. I can also give some continuity as we move from year to year, with the staff changeover that is sure to accompany that. This is a student newspaper, and I think what we publish should come from students. Happy Reading, Tony Greiner
