My name is David Schick. I’m a full-time student at the University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Society of Professional Journalists’ summer ’14 Pulliam/Kilgore freedom of information intern. I’m currently working on my undergraduate degree and expect to graduate in the fall of 2014 as a journalism major with emphasis in public affairs.
Even though I’m still a student, my reporting has appeared in a wide array of publications such as USA TODAY, as well as two weekly alternative papers in Georgia, Flagpole Magazine and Creative Loafing. And I got my start — like most do — at my college newspaper, The Collegian where I served as Editor-in-Chief. Currently, I hold a leadership role as the president for the combined Online News Association / Society of Professional Journalist group at UGA.
This website serves as ground zero for my investigation into Georgia Perimeter College’s million dollar shortfall, a story I’ve been tracking since May 2012 and has led me to sue the University System of Georgia for open records act violations.
You’ll also find that I like to blog about the ever changing journalism world, college media and everything else.
