POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — Christian Lingner, senior history and biblical and theological studies major at College of the Ozarks, interned at the National Journalism Center in Washington, D.C., for the summer of 2017.
The National Journalism Center, established in 1977 by conservative journalist M. Stanton Evans, is an American political organization. It runs programs and internships for journalism students to educate them on professional journalism and conservative political issues and values.
Lingner submitted several written articles along with the application and then proceeded to the next step of the interview process, a phone interview.
“So many facets of my life have already been affected by this internship,” Lingner said. “Professionally, I learned to write, research, and fact check. Each of those elements are incredibly important in whatever field one might enter; business, journalism, academia. I will use those transferable skills consistently throughout my life. Personally, I have been challenged to develop relationships, live on my own in a completely foreign environment, and essentially just choose my own path. I came back to Point Lookout as a more experienced and mature person, ready to make an impact during my senior year.”
