Four journalism students have been selected as interns for the summer of 2020. The Reese Cleghorn Internship program hires outstanding student journalists to intern in MDDC member newsrooms each summer. These interns were selected from a pool of highly-qualified applicants. This is one of our most geographically diverse groups, with one student each from University of Maryland, Baltimore County, University of Maryland, College Park, Macalester College and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The intern selection committee reviewed nearly twenty initial applications, which included a personal essay, published clips and educational and professional references. The committee narrowed the field and conducted a panel interview with each candidate.
