King’s alumni were part of the recent Council of Atlantic Premiers delegation to Brazil, 21-25 October. Brazil is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and the delegation was there to explore possible collaborations with Atlantic Canada. King’s vice president and journalism professor Kim Kierans (DipJ ’76, BA ’82, HC ’83) was able to visit a number of educational institutions that have journalism programs and lay the foundations for partnerships with two institutions in Sao Paulo and two in Rio de Janeiro.
Other King’s alumni in attendance were former Nova Scotia premier Darrell Dexter (BJ ’83), Globe and Mail Latin America bureau chief Stephanie Nolen (BJH ’93, DCL ’09), who was reporting on the event, and Amber Caseley (BJH ’10), senior communications officer with the Government of Prince Edward Island.
