24, Elon-Style

Students in Dr. Glenn Scott's Reporting for the Public Good class this fall

We have our own “24” in progress in the School of Communications.

It isn’t at all like the TV show “24” where Jack Bauer had 24 hours, spanning a 24-episode season, to save humanity from destruction.

Instead, students in Reporting for the Public Good are partnering with the Burlington Times-News to produce a special section examining 24 hours in the life of Alamance County, our home.

As Times-News editor Madison Taylor describes in his column, each student will select an hour of a full day — all 24 — and profile someone or thing operating at that time. It could be anything, with one requirement: The stories better be worth reading.

By the time the editor finished describing the project, enthusiastic students already were selecting times and topics. We’ll see the results in early 2011.
