Triangle Tigers Awarded Capstone Status

The Mizzou Triangle Tigers (MTT) chapter, serving the greater Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, has been awarded Capstone status by the Mizzou Alumni Association (MAA), the highest level a chapter can achieve.

Truman and MAA president-elect Andrea Allison-Putman give Mizzou Triangle Tigers President Tim McKay the Capstone Chapter designation during Alumni Leadership weekend at Mizzou, Sept 22, 2017.

The Capstone status allows chapters to maintain an established fund to reward high achieving area students with scholarship support when they become Tigers.

Obtaining Capstone status requires a number of steps to be taken by the chapter, including attending leadership training in Columbia, hosting a variety of events, adding new members, and much more.

MTT 2017-18 President Tim McKay attended the Alumni Leadership Weekend at the University of Missouri-Columbia campus on Sept. 22-23, 2017. Leaders from Mizzou alumni chapters came together to learn, share, and work towards the greater good of MAA.  Each chapter sent representatives to attend.

Tim was presented the Capstone Chapter designation by MAA president-elect Andrea Allison-Putman and Truman, the Mizzou mascot.


MTT Awards Chris Joseph with a Scholarship for 2017-18 School Year

Chris Joseph – Mizzou Triangle Tigers scholarship recipient

Our alumni chapter has awarded a $2000 scholarship for the 2017-18 school year to Chris Joseph, who is in the Missouri School of Journalism Class of 2018. He is currently a CBS News National Desk Intern in New York City and has worked as a KOMU 8 News Reporter. Below is information Chris provided us when we asked him to tell us about himself.

Wow!  I am humbled and extraordinarily grateful for this scholarship.  Thank you so much! 

I was born in the suburbs of Philadelphia and then spent some time in Connecticut.  When I was three (in 1999) my parents and I moved to Chapel Hill and I’ve lived there ever since!  I grew up in Chapel Hill and I’m proud to say it will forever by my home.

I was a die hard UNC fan as a kid.  The 2005 and 2009 national championship teams will forever be my heroes.  I still have Sean May and Tyler Hansbrough jerseys in my closet back home.  I went to Carrboro High School and graduated in 2014.  I was varsity in football and lacrosse, and was a member of the 2012 football runner-up squad from Carrboro my junior year.  I was a captain and all-conference in lacrosse my junior and senior seasons. 

I became involved in the school newspaper, The JagWire, my sophomore year and went on to be the Editor in Chief of the paper my senior year.  I would not be involved in reporting today if my journalism teacher sophomore year, Ms. Jan Gottschalk, had not told me I was good at it. I took her words to heart and decided that was going to be my life path. 

Growing up in Chapel Hill, I obviously had a strong connection to the university.  However, I wanted to explore the country.  My counselor in high school recommended I look at Mizzou for its journalism program.  I applied and was accepted the fall of my senior year, and that spring break I visited Columbia for the first time.  I was sold.  The campus, community, and journalism school was everything I was looking for.  

Since I’ve been on campus, I’ve tried to keep busy.  I spent time with MUTV 23 (the student television station), played club lacrosse my freshman year, worked at KOMU, and was initiated into the Missouri Alpha Chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.  I also held down jobs at the Mark Twain dining hall and the Applebees off Nifong. 

My favorite thing about Mizzou is easily the people.  I have made friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.  The people I’ve encountered have helped me grow, mature, and open my mind to things I had never would have encountered in Chapel Hill.  Being in the Midwest also allowed me to pursue my passion for travel, as I have been lucky enough to see St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Colorado and New Orleans among other locations. 

I intern at the national desk at CBS News in New York City.  It is the nerve center for all the news operations that CBS News produces on its national network.  I am responsible for keeping tabs on developing stories, making phone calls to confirm information, arrange for the coverage of local events, and any other odds or ends the national assignment editor has me do.  I work a little over 40 hours a week and have had fantastic networking opportunities with my fellow interns and our superiors.  The culture at CBS News is amazing and it’s a place I would love to work at in the future.

I am also involved with the New York study abroad program run by Reuben Stern.  I take a class every Tuesday evening where we talk with a guest lecturer about their experience in the vast journalism field.  We also tour various media outlets.  So far we have seen the Wall Street Journal, the Today Show, and BuzzFeed among others.  It has provided a great deal of guidance and insight into the industry and has also presented ample networking opportunities. 

I’m not sure where the winds will take me after graduation.  I’d like to work as a television reporter and eventually make my way back to New York City in one capacity or another.  I’d also like to be an anchor eventually.  There are many factors I have to weigh in my job hunt this spring.  I don’t know definitively what path I want to take.  Right now I’m just trying to live in the moment and enjoy the internship.

A fun fact about my time at Mizzou is Shakespeare’s Pizza is my favorite March Madness viewing location. Again, thank you so much for this scholarship!

Triangle Tigers Support Local Film Production

During it’s North Carolina Premiere at the Longleaf Film Festival in Raleigh, members of the Mizzou Triangle Tigers chapter showed their support for THE HARROW, a psychological thriller filmed in North Carolina.  Mizzou Triangle Tigers board member, Jill Hammergren was the Associate Producer and Production Unit Manager for the movie. At the event, THE HARROW won 2017 Narrative Feature Best Drama and received a  2017 Tar Heel Tie-in recognition for having a North Carolina connection. “We filmed this feature at several locations in Greensboro, Oxford, Raleigh, and in Alamance and Person counties,” said Hammergren.  “It was an intense 18 days of production. We were very fortunate to have some terrific locations, and work with many excellent people and businesses, who helped make the production happen in North Carolina.” In THE HARROW, protagonist, Miller Lee (Tom McKay), spends his days in self-imposed solitude in an empty century-old North Carolina slaughterhouse. He is haunted, or kept company, by visions of Gale (Maggie Geha), a woman he loved a decade ago who was brutally murdered. Ruth (Sonya Harum) comes into his world. She’s a young woman who is desperate to know the truth about her mother’s life and death. This need drives her to push through the dark passages of Miller’s psyche. Miller feels empathy and kinship for Ruth, but as much as he wants to help her, Miller can’t give Ruth what she desires most. Over three nights together in the slaughterhouse, Miller and Ruth trade elements of their own grim past, lifting layers and untangling the web. “We shot this film over three weeks during the tobacco harvest season in North Carolina. I wanted to set this story in the South, which has always seemed to me as America’s greatest wealth of history, tradition and stories,” said Kevin Stocklin, Writer/Director, THE HARROW, “The characters in this story are all tightly bound to their past, struggling to break free from their deeds and circumstances. Their tragedy is that, even though their hearts can change with time and revelation, they remain forever bound to the deeds of their youth.”

THE HARROW is available on DVD and for digital download.
