A partnership between Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) has produced a new campaign- #DiscoverTheUnexpected. This campaign allows eight African American journalism students from Howard University to find compelling news stories this summer while driving the all-new Chevrolet Malibu. The partnership is special because the students get journalism experience in big cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, and Detroit, along with mentorship from real newspapers. The car allows them to do it at a high level as it is equipped with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, which will allow the students to stay connected and share their findings.
Rushawn Waters, a senior Journalism major, found a compelling story. He had the opportunity to attend the Capital Press Club in Washington D.C where they were honoring the life of Muhammed Ali. Waters got to speak with and interview speakers who knew Ali at the event, as well as take in the experience that will aid him as he studies to become a real journalist. His involvement in the campaign also gave him $10,000 that he can use towards his tuition, as well as a generous stipend to assist him in starting his career.
