Darius Brown, a CAP Leadership Institute Fellow, was recognized in the Wilmington News Journal for being selected as one of the inaugural Fellows of this program. The News Journal, a Gannett-owned newspaper and web site, noted Brown in its “People” section on October 20. On November 3, the Wilmington City Council also honored Brown and the Leadership Institute with special proclamations. Watch the proclamation here.
After attending the Leadership Institute’s November session “Writing for Online and Editorial,” Brown wrote an op-ed column that was featured on Delaware Online, the Wilmington News Journal’s website. Brown worked with Ed Paisley, vice president for editorial at CAP, to prepare his column. See Brown’s column “A Workable Plan for Creating Jobs in Wilmington” here.
