Each year, the Media School at Indiana University in Bloomington chooses a select group of no more than 15 incoming freshmen from across the nation as Ernie Pyle Scholars.

This year, and for the sixth time in the last seven years, one of those 15 students is a Cathedral High School senior.

Jameson Browne has the option to begin his experience as an Ernie Pyle Scholar next August at IU. As a direct admit journalism major, he will take classes with his fellow scholars, be assigned a professor of practice to guide him through his undergraduate studies, participate in a media tour of Chicago, take part in seminars and programs at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida and spend the summer between his junior and senior years studying British media in London.

Browne is wrapping up his third year as a member of the Megaphone newspaper at Cathedral, where he writes sports and news stories for the both the print and web versions of the student newspaper.
