NEW YORK (Apr. 24)
Arthur Wilner, a senior at the Ramaz School has begun a six-week internship at the Jewish Telegraphic Agency as part of Ramaz’s work study project, a program in which senior students work in various job fields on a totally voluntary basis. Wilner specializes in creative writing but is also involved in the field of journalism, ranging from an extensive writing course he took last summer at Cornell University to the position he holds as contributing editor of his school’s paper. “The Ram Page.”
Wilner is engaged in many communal and scholastic activities. Among them, he is co-chairman of Ramaz’s publicity committee, no member of the school’s computer and current events clubs, and he is greatly dedicated to his synagogue’s youth organization. However, his main interests lie in the realm of performing arts. He is on active member of his school’s English Dramatics Society, and hopes to direct one of its productions by the end of the school year.
