Please join us Monday April 22nd 2019
For our meeting Monday April 22nd as we welcome Cindi Ross Scoppe a Journalist with the Post & Courier.
Cindi grew up on a tobacco farm in the North Carolina Piedmont, where she learned the importance of hard work, education, community and faith. Cindi worked at The News and Observer during her senior year at the University of North Carolina, then spent a year at The Fayetteville Observer before moving to The State in 1986.
After 12 years of covering police and the Richland County Council and federal courts and the Legislature – mostly the Legislature – she applied for a position on the editorial board. As part of the application process, she had to write three editorials and a column. Using facts and logic and common sense and the shared values of our society to educate and persuade people to re-examine or even change their perspectives was the most natural thing she had ever done. And she’s been doing it ever since. She currently works as a Journalist with the Post & Courier.
