RMU chapter inducts 18 new members, hosts 1A event

The Robert Morris University chapter inducted 18 new members yesterday, October 2, at its annual SCJ induction ceremony. COMM department chair Dr. Anthony Moretti offered remarks at the ceremony attended by students, faculty, family, and friends.

Sixteen of the 18 new inductees, plus SCJ chapter adviser Carrie Moniot, stand behind the chapter’s four officers, seated L-R: Secretary Malyk Johnson, VP Morgan Torchia, Treasurer Tori Flick and President Sam Anthony.

Earlier in the day, the chapter also hosted its first-ever First Amendment event, titled “Is the First Amendment Under Fire in Pittsburgh?”

Guest speakers included former Pittsburgh Post Gazette political cartoonist Rob Rogers (via Skype); free speech activist Joan Bauer; former Pittsburgh City Paper Editor Charlie Deitch; and Napier University (Edinburgh) literature professor Alistair McCleery.

Kudos to our RMU chapter on its induction ceremony and 1A event. And a hearty welcome to the 18 newly inducted members of our SCJ family!
