Connie Schultz to talk “Life” at LCCC Journalism Scholarship Fundraiser

Renowned journalist Connie Schultz will speak at fundraiser for a new journalism scholarship at Lorain County Community College.

Schultz will present “Life Happens” at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 14 in the Spitzer Conference Center on the campus of LCCC.

The event will raise funds for the new John G. Cole Memorial Scholarship in Journalism at LCCC. The scholarship is named for local media legend John G. Cole, who devoted his life to journalism, serving as the editor of the Morning Journal from 1979-2008. He was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Cleveland Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists in 2003.

Shultz won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary for columns that judges praised for providing “a voice for the underdog and the underprivileged." She is a nationally syndicated columnist for Creators Syndicate and a regular essayist for Parade Magazine and authored two books, “Life Happens: and Other Unavoidable Truths” and “… And His Lovely Wife: A Campaign Memoir from the Woman Beside the Man,” which chronicles her experiences during the 2008 Senate campaign of her husband, Sherrod Brown. She spent 17 years as a columnist for the Plain Dealer.

Applications are being accepted for the John G. Cole Memorial Scholarship in Journalism for fall semester 2012. Two $500 scholarships will be awarded to journalism students at LCCC.
