ThreeSixty alumnus Simeon Lancaster recently joined ThreeSixty Journalism’s Leadership Council. Lancaster was the 2013 ThreeSixty Scholar, is a 2017 graduate of St. Thomas and currently is production assistant with PBS NewsHour’s Under-Told Stories Project.
“I started my ThreeSixty Journey when I was 14, and it took me through college and further into my career path than I could have imagined,” Lancaster said. “I am thrilled to join the Leadership Council and start using what ThreeSixty gave me to help the next generation of students.”
Lancaster looks forward to supporting the talented students he’ll cross paths with while serving on the Leadership Council. His focus area on the council is to enhance engagement of other ThreeSixty Alumni.
“It wasn’t long ago Simeon was a ThreeSixty student, then of course a Tommie as a ThreeSixty Scholar,” ThreeSixty executive director Chad Caruthers said. “He’s had great support and mentorship throughout both, and I know he’s excited to help ensure current and future ThreeSixty students have the best experience possible.”
Lancaster continues to apply his ThreeSixty and university learning in important ways.
“I’m so excited to be producing international, solutions-based journalism that cuts through the news bubble – journalism that the world needs to hear right now,” Lancaster said of his current Under-Told Stories Project role.
The Under-Told Stories Project is housed at St. Thomas.
