GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 25, 2014) – National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) recently selected Dawn Mellinger of Denver, Pennsylvania as one of six college students to participate in a two-week study abroad trip to Jesus College in the heart of Oxford University.

Mellinger, a senior journalism and mass communication major at Bob Jones University, will participate in the Oxford method “one on one” tutorials (research and writing) with a distinguished scholar. During the study, Mellinger will complete four essays in either communication, film, theology, ethics or philosophy.

“Dawn has done superb work in our program here at BJU, and we are very proud of her acceptance as an NRB Oxford Distinguished Scholar,” said Dr. Darren Lawson, Dean of the School of Fine Arts and Communication at Bob Jones University. “We know this experience will greatly enhance her current studies and future career.”

The study tour will be led by NRB President and CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. The tour will also be joined by Dr. Harold Rawlings, an expert on the history of the English Bible, and Bill Blount, NRB Board Chairman.
