On Monday, Darren Doyle, the editor of The Edmonson Voice, came to the Edmonson County 5/6 Center to speak to Mrs. Meghan Stidham’s 6th grade journalism class.
He covered many things and discussed what you might report, like anything that affects residents, crime reports, human interests, wrecks, sports, entertaining things, and upcoming events.
Darren talked about the importance of using credible and reliable resources and used funny examples like aliens and UFO’s in the news to make things more entertaining and to make the kids laugh.
Mrs. Stidham, the elementary journalism class teacher, asked Darren to speak to the class to help with the school’s newspaper. This helped the kids better understand the elements of news articles.
Darren must have hit it off with the kids because when he was done speaking, Daren Alexander, a student in the class asked, “Where do you sign up to get a job at the Edmonson Voice?”
