David Schick is a journalist with over three years of experience covering hard news. Currently a full-time student at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication (December 2014 graduate), David has been published in a wide array of publications such as USA TODAY, the Society of Professional Journalists and two alternative weekly papers in Georgia, Flagpole Magazine and Creative Loafing. He got his start—like many do—at his college newspaper, The Collegian, where he served as Editor-in-Chief. He also holds the leadership role of president for the combined Online News Association / Society of Professional Journalist group at UGA.
During his role as EIC of The Collegian, David began investigating Georgia Perimeter College’s million dollar shortfall, a story he’s been tracking since May 2012. His investigation led him to sue the University System of Georgia for violations of the Georgia Open Records Act after his open records requests were mishandled.
David uses this website to continue his inquiry into the GPC budget deficit and also blogs about the journalism world, college media and everything else that lights a fire under his pen.
