Visiting with future journalists

You may wonder just how all of us in the newspaper business got our start.
Many times it’s working for a school newspaper or yearbook, whether it’s in college, high school or even elementary school.
That’s how I started when I was a member of the Kaleidoscope staff at UAB.
Now, I have the opportunity to visit with the future of our business.
Priceville Elementary teacher Tammie Frye asked us to come visit with her newspaper club last week and talk about what we do on a daily basis and how the newspaper works.
It was great to get to interact with the students and to see just what they know about putting a newspaper together.
The group of students actually produce their own newspaper twice a year. It’s called the Bulldog Bark.
Just to give you a sample of the stories of their front page, here’s a few of their headlines: “Restaurant Fire,” “Flooding in Priceville” and “Iron Bowl.”
All three of those stories would probably get anyone to read them.
It was a pleasure to get to meet these students and I wish them luck in their endeavors.
I’d love the opportunity to get to meet your students and talk with them about the newspaper business, just like I did at Priceville.
If you’re interested in doing this, please give me a call at 256-773-6566 or e-mail me at brent.maze@hartselleenquirer.com.
