Dr. Jerram Barrs (author of required WJI reading, The Heart of Evangelism) published Through His Eyes: God’s Perspective on Women in the Bible (Crossway Books, 2009). Barrs is resident scholar of the Francis Schaeffer Institute and professor at Covenant Theological Seminary.

John Dickerson (WJI alum 03) is a winner of the $10,000 Livingston Awards for Young Journalists for 2009. The prizes are limited to journalists under the age of 35 and are the largest all-media, general-reporting prizes in the country. Dickerson, who works for the Phoenix New Times, won the award for local reporting for “The Doctor is Out,” a three-part series on medical standards and regulation in Arizona that disclosed the failure of the state and medical institutions to keep unqualified, drug addicted or criminally negligent physicians from practicing medicine.

John McCandlish Phillips (WJI teacher 01-07 and the named WJI chair for journalism) was featured in a June 5 article in the Wall Street Journal, entitled “A Calling Higher Than Journalism: Who Knew?”

Jenna Schuette (WJI alum 07) is working at American Enterprise Institute as a research assistant for Dr. Frederick Hess, the director of education policy at AEI.
