Carolyn Carlson to be honored at holiday mixer in Atlanta Dec. 9

By Ellen Eldridge, SPJ Georgia president

Dr. Carolyn Carlson

If it weren’t for Dr. Carolyn Carlson, I wouldn’t be president of the Georgia Pro chapter of Society of Professional Journalists. Honestly, I might not even be a working journalist.

I don’t say that to discount my hard work, but to emphasize how much her caring has helped my career. Less than one year after graduation from Kennesaw State University, where Carolyn was my news writing and reporting instructor as well as the academic adviser for SPJ on campus, I landed my dream job with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

But it hasn’t just been me Carolyn has helped over the last four decades.
