Journalism Major’s Article Published in the Huffington Post

Posted on September 9, 2013.

Huffington Post, HPU, High Point University, ScotlandHIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 9, 2013 – An article written by High Point University senior Henry Molski appeared in the nationally renowned news blog, The Huffington Post, over the weekend.

Molski, a communication major with a concentration in journalism and a minor in global commerce, spent a month investigating the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum vote after being awarded a grant through the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. He interviewed everyone from Scottish members of Parliament, to professors at top universities, to the country’s retired veterans and people waiting for the train.

The vote will determine if Scotland should secede from the United Kingdom. For the first time, the Scottish government is also opening up this crucial vote to 16 and 17-year-olds.

“I discovered Scotland’s residents were passionate and well informed about an issue that hasn’t received much attention in the United States to this date,” says Molski. “It is an issue that looms so large that updates over the referendum were front page headlines every day.”

Molski’s reporting is gaining attention in the U.S. and his article titled, “Scotland’s Secession Vote: Indecisive Independence” was featured in the Huffington Post on Sept.7.
