CSJMM hires 3 Ninos and a Tiko

Copyright Keith Kenney, 2011

Susanna and I hosted a potluck dinner for all of the administrators, staff, and faculty at the Caucasus School of Journalism and Media Management, including the four women we were about to hire. Shortly before midnight, after having enjoyed a few . . . beverages . . . Nino, Nino, Nino, and Tiko signed their contracts and officially became faculty members of CSJMM. The three Ninos have the family names of Japiashvili, Orjonikidze, and Makhviladze. The Tiko is Tiko Nachkebia, formerly the coordinator of the public relations MA program at CSJMM. I am extremely pleased that CSJMM was able to hire such talented, energetic individuals for its journalism MA program.
