GUHSD Students Attend Annual Journalism Workshop

GUHSD Students Attend Annual Journalism Workshop
July 2011- Students from four GUHSD schools participated in the 53rd annual Arizona Interscholastic Press Association Summer Workshop at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University this month.

Directed by Thunderbird High School's own Sheri Siwek, this event included 60 student journalists and 17 publication advisers from around the state.

During the workshop, students were able to gain insight from notable keynote speakers, including three-time Emmy winner and anchor of CBS 5 News, Catherine Anaya, and Phoenix sports correspondent, Craig Morgan.

Students and advisers were also able to participate in smaller workshops, geared toward learning all of the different aspects of media writing and production.

GUHSD commends these students and advisers for going the extra mile to sharpen their skills and make each school's newspaper and yearbook the best they can be.
