Alumni Memory: Jocelyn Dickey, BJ ’00

The Power of Simple Words

I wanted to give a big thank you to David Tait and a lesson he gave in my second year fundamentals of reporting class. The lesson was about the power of “simple” words (5 letters or less) to convey meaning. I still use the concept I learned in that lesson in my job today – as a developmental editor working in the insurance education sector. Thanks Dave! – Jocelyn Dickey (BJ ’00)
