2018-12-19 - NUVO - The Year in News 2018


In my capacity as NUVO News Editor, I, along with Cory Cathcart, a student at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis' Department of Journalism and Public Relations in the School of Liberal Arts, organized all of the news stories in 2018 on Dec. 19, 2018. We organized them by category: Education, Indiana Statehouse, Criminal Justice, Health & Environment, and Midterm Elections.
