UM J School students and alums have been covering the protests at Standing Rock since last September… and the onset of winter hasn’t slowed them down.  Student Tailyr Irvine was out at the North Dakota camp this past weekend when the Army Corps of Engineers announced a halt to construction.  She’s been joined by alums Amy Sisk, who reports for Inside Energy and NPR, Nicky Ouellet (MTPR), Bronte Wittpenn (Billings Gazette), Evan Frost (MPR) and others.  The J School prides itself on learning through doing, and the Standing Rock assignment has shown our reporters are ready to file, no matter what the temperature is.  screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-2-06-59-pm
