Isis Initiative President Cheryl Hatch and Treasurer Samanda Dorger received a shout out in the Ohio University alumni magazine, Ohio Today (Summer 2009, page 41).

I had pitched a story about Isis Initiative to Ms. Mariel Jungkunz, the editor of Ohio Today magazine, earlier this year. We exchanged e-mails and spoke on the phone. She said she liked the story and thought it would appeal to the magazine’s readers. She couldn’t promise it would make the next issue, though. She had a number of strong stories competing for space.

We didn’t get a story; we did get a mention in the back of the magazine in alumni news.

Samanda and I met in 1997 when we both studied at Ohio University in the renowned graduate program in the School of Visual Communication. With committed perseverance, we both completed and defended our thesis projects and received our Master of Arts degrees.

After a long career in photojournalism, I decided to focus on my work with women and education. I took the plunge and I created Isis Initiative, Inc. When I asked Sam if she’d be help me, she stepped up and agreed to be our treasurer.

I will continue to pitch the story and follow up with Ms. Jungkunz. I believe in our story and our mission; I think it’s important to share it. Every story helps generate awareness. Awareness generates interest. Interest generates support.

Help us get noticed. Please feel free to use the contact info below and pitch our story, too. Write: Ohio Today, 102 Scott Quad, Ohio University, Athens, Ohio 45701-2979
