Pulitzer winning journalist to speak at Marymount

Marymount University in Arlington celebrates Ethics Awareness Week Feb. 6-10 by honoring Sara Ganim, CNN correspondent and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for her coverage of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal, with the Marymount Ethics Award.

One of the youngest journalists to win the Pulitzer, Ganim is a 2008 aluma of Penn State. She joined CNN in 2012 after her award-winning coverage of the Sandusky scandal for The Patriot News in Harrisburg, Pa. In 2015, she won a Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists for her reporting on an academic scandal involving athletes at the University of North Carolina.

Professor Brian Doyle, director of Marymount’s Center for Ethical Concerns, will interview Ganim in a forum called “Finding Ethics in the World of Sports” at Marymount University, Reinsch Library, 2807 N. Glebe Rd., Arlington, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
