Rachael McKinney, a sophomore English major and Journalism minor from Rainelle, West Virginia, received funds from The Appalachian College Association to study women and their use of technology in newsrooms of the Ogden Group of newspapers. The Ogden Group owns over 100 newspapers in the Appalachian region, as well as publications in Florida, Hawaii and other states. Rachael will do the bulk of her work in the summer, but will do some field work at some local newspapers in the spring. She will also do survey research of all of the Ogden Group newspapers. The ACA mini-grant will fund travel, equipment, supplies and an hourly stipend. Congratulations, Rachael!
