Horizon Sun Leaders Part of Elite Group to Attend ASU’s Cronkite Summer Institute

Zach Asato, Natori Cruz, & Kelleigh Hogan will represent the Horizon Honors Journalism Program at ASU, learning new and innovative journalistic skills from some of the industry’s leading professionals.


The Horizon Sun is delighted to announce that two rising seniors and one rising junior have been selected to attend the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU’s Summer Journalism Institute. Juniors Zach Asato and Natori Cruz and sophomore Kelleigh Hogan (as an alternate) will represent the Horizon Honors Journalism department at ASU’s Downtown campus for two, fully-funded weeks during the summer of 2015. This is the third year that The Sun has been represented at SJI, with former EIC Anja Asato attending in 2013 and current EIC Alexa Geidel attending in 2014. This year, Zach Asato is the Head of Photo, Cruz is the Managing Editor, and Hogan is the Editor of Sports and Student Life.  The three of them will be in the elite group of 14 students learning about Print and Digital Journalism at SJI. Their time at SJI will be spent alongside the prestigious staff and industry connections of Cronkite in addition to all of the resources the nation’s largest university has to offer. Wish the aspiring journalists luck this summer at SJI as they prepare to take The Horizon Sun to the next level!
