David Gostomelsky has joined the Cleveland Jewish Publication Company as the fall Yoda Newton Editorial Intern.
David is a senior at Orange High School who wants to study journalism in college.
He will work in the editorial department of the Cleveland Jewish News and the Columbus Jewish News, where he will learn from staff professionals about interviewing, writing, editing, design, social media, photography and more for all platforms, including the newspaper, magazines, website and social media channels.
“David will undoubtedly benefit from the time he will spend in our newsroom, observing and working with our newsroom and digital content staff,” Managing Editor Bob Jacob said. “The skills he learns during his internship will complement what he learns in the classroom and better prepare him for the working world. When David leaves here, he will have a better understanding of the business as he enters college.”
He is active with the robotics team and enjoys sightseeing around Greater Cleveland, listening to music and playing video games.
David is the son of Marsha Elyashevich of Pepper Pike and Vadim Gostomelsky of Beachwood.
The internship was created when the CJN Foundation received a significant donation that was earmarked to fund a 40-week paid internship, from September through May.
The internship will be financed through the Yoda Newton Donor Advised Fund of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. The Yoda Newton “Share the Luv” philanthropic fund was established about 15 years ago as a resource to fund its charitable interests.
