Surprising people: Spring 2012
Students from Comm 481 Multimedia reporting were recently given an assignment to fan out across their communities and find regular people who do something surprising. They found the subjects of these stories as close as State College -- and for one student from New York -- as far away as Staten Island.
Most students know Jeff Brown as a communications instructor at Penn State. Tanner Sweeney is a film student. David Jones usually looks like any other typical 24-year-old State College resident. Matt Burns grew up on Staten Island.
But there's a lot more to these four people than first meets the eye.
More stories of surprising people.
