Pulitzer Prize-winning Morrisville State College Alumnus Will Speak at Journalism Convocation

Jack Durschlag, Morrisville State College class of 1981, will make a triumphant return to his alma mater on April 28 as the keynote speaker at the Journalism Convocation.

Durschlag’s paper, the Star-Legder of Newark, N.J., won a Pulitzer Prize in 2005 for coverage of the New Jersey governor’s resignation after he announced he was gay and had taken part in an adulterous affair with a man. Durschlag was part of the team of reporters and editors who amassed the coverage.

Durschlag received an associate degree in journalism technology from Morrisville State College in 1981. He was formerly a reporter for the Oneida Daily Dispatch and also served as a writer and editor for the New Jersey Advance and Morristown Daily Record before joining the Star-Ledger.

At the convocation, he will speak to journalism students, faculty and administration about his experiences.
