On Wednesday, June 1, six high school and five middle school journalism students visited the Newseum in Washington, DC with journalism adviser Ms. Gantt.  The Newseum features exhibits that explore the history and applications of the First Amendement, emphasizing how a free press has shaped the past and will shape the present.

Middle school journalist Meraid Chase said that courses on media ethics will greatly influence her work on the school newspaper.  “[I learned to] be careful about what I put into my work,” Chase said.

High school journalist Sofia Rose said that the trip sparked her interest in learning more about “the boundaries of freedom of the press.”

Three parent chaperons accompanied students on the trip.
