Nieman Foundation Fellow Ann M. Simmons, bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times in Johannesburg, South Africa, receives her Nieman certificate from Harvard President Lawrence H. Summers at a ceremony at Massachusetts Hall on May 15. Summers told the fellows that Harvard ‘derives great benefits from your presence,’ and expressed his belief that the program helps to promote both greater knowledge and higher ethical standards – qualities needed in today’s rapidly changing profession of journalism.
