On October 25, members of the PHS media staff went to Indiana University Southeast to attend the Southern Indiana Student Press Association Fall Convention. The students took part in workshop classes taught by professional journalists, such as leadership meetings, story idea classes, writing classes and more. Student work was showcased in competition there as well.
The Paoli staff won a total of 35 awards, including News Organization of the Year and Yearbook of the Year. Senior Addison Wells was the winner of the Journalism Scholarship.
“It’s always a great trip that I hope rejuvenates our students to take pride in their work and strive to compete for years to come,” said Journalism Adviser Heather Nichols.
