Originally, the department trip included time with UVA Alumna and former Lawnie Katie Couric at the CBS Evening News. As you might guess, the tragic earthquake in Haiti last Tuesday drew many journalists and volunteers and Ms. Couric was obviously needed elsewhere. We hope to meet her on future trips. In the meantime, our thoughts are with the people of Haiti.
