First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross

06/19/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; World Refugee Day; UNF Interfaith Scholarship

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Dan Scanlan, Florida Times-Union reporter; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal editor; and Andrew Pantazi, Florida Times-Union reporter.

Topics include the shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, pension reform and more.

We also preview several events taking place on the First Coast to welcome new citizens into the city in honor of World Refugee Day this week.

The University of North Florida Interfaith Center recently made history when it presented the Noor Inayat Khan Interfaith Community Service Award, one of the first interfaith community service scholarships offered by a college or university in the United States. We speak with recipients Kalilah Jamall and Clare Stern, and Tarah Trueblood, director of the UNF Interfaith Center.
