Published in May 2011, the project profiled 11 Mizzou military veterans, many of whom had served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Returning to a campus community can be difficult after facing combat and death. The veterans shared their experiences, from working on a ship in the Persian Gulf to maintaining aircraft in Iraq.
Missouri School of Journalism students in the magazine, photojournalism, print and digital news and convergence areas produced the “Student Veterans” multimedia stories. Vox magazine staff reporters wrote the profiles and gathered audio for each veteran. They partnered with Missourian staff photographers for the video and still photography.
Kristin Kellogg, BJ ’07, MA ’09, who served as an adjunct instructor in 2011, was the designer of the multimedia project.
Students who worked on the project were: Kayla Alewel, Mallory Benedict, David Cawthon, Ryan Cornell, Deron Dalton, Jon Hadusek, Amanda Harrison, Ted Hart, Rachel Krause, Zoey Larsen, Ileana Llorens, Nicole Oran, Tim Rice, Shea Roll, Dalene Rovenstine, Nick Schnelle, Samantha Sonderen, Jessica Perkins Walsh and Andrew Williams.
The project was supervised by assistant professors Rhonda Prast and Brian Kratzer.
Journalists from Madrid, St. Louis, Toronto and London judged the approximately 500 entries submitted to the contest, SND’s Best of Digital News Design competition.
