Congratulations Kyra!

Congratulations to sophomore Kyra Gegner for being named one of the three Indiana finalists for the SPJ/JEA essay contest.

The contest, sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Journalism Education Association, asked students to answer the question: What is the role and importance of the Fourth Estate in American society?

Gegner’s essay will be submitted by the Indiana High School Press Association to be judged in the national contest. She will also be recognized at the First Amendment Symposium on March 14 and awarded $50.
