Edmonson County 5/6 Center Journalism students from Mrs. Meghan Stidham's class recently attended a field trip at WKU for a tour of the WKU School of Journalism and Broadcasting to learn about aspects of the journalism industry. A photojournalism exhibit is currently on display and students had the opportunity to few the exhibit titled a Dollar a Day about poverty and life in third world countries. The entire group of students were videoed during a question and answer session about the exhibit, and asked how they felt about the various photos.
"A few students were interviewed one-on-one by a CBS Sunday Morning producer about their particular thoughts on the exhibit," said Mrs. Meghan. "The CBS segment will be over the photojournalism exhibit and the students were very excited about their opportunity to be on national television."
Students interviewed for the segment were: Ethan Edwards, Alyssa Doyle, Ty Brantley and Emily Meredith. The class publishes their own digital news source at school called "The PawPrint Press," where Alyssa Doyle serves as editor. She's the daughter of Edmonson Voice Editor Darren Doyle.
Students were able to see a real news studio, sit in the control room for both radio and television broadcasting, and tour the offices of the College Heights Herald, the on-campus news source published by WKU.
The CBS segment is scheduled to air Sunday, April 9th at 8am.
