“The most rewarding part of my job is working with all of the different students,” Steele said. “I love to see how passionate the kids are about journalism and how energized they are when they receive special awards.”
Special awards will be presented to stand out students at 11 o’ clock on Thursday, August 1. This presentation along with the closing session will be held in the business college in room N130. This session will be available for all camp members as well as any parents that wish to attend. The staff’s overall goal is to see a large improvement at the end of this week.
“I see a change in confidence in the students throughout the course of the week. Students definitely look more sure of their work and what they have accomplished,” Steele said. “Even just by watching the announcements each morning, I see such an improvement in the “Smile, You’re on Camera” class.”
The workshop is a meeting ground for young journalists that wish to improve one or many of their skills. Growth, improvement, and overall confidence with the skills it takes to become a journalist is what the MIPA workshop strives to achieve.
“Learning is what we are all about here,” Steele said.
