Once again, FC student journalists spent five days in the hot Bloomington weather enhancing their skills and their publications at the High School Journalism Institute at Indiana University. And once again, they learned a great deal while excelling.
Students attending Week 2 of HSJI from July 11-15 include seniors Emily Brewer, Kat Brewer, Chelsey Carr, Laura Hubrich, Carmen Huff, Abigail Kost, Amanda Millea, and Avery Walts; juniors Brittani Clerici and Garrett Receveur; and sophomore Lauren McNeeley.
The FC Yearbook Team of Chelsey Carr, Laura Hubrich, Carmen Huff, Abigail Kost, and Lauren McNeeley won 2nd place in Outstanding Portfolio.
Carmen Huff won her lab award for the second consecutive week. In addition, Kat Brewer won the Instructor’s Choice Award in photojournalism, and Brittani Clerici won the Class Choice Award in photojournalism.
Finally, Chelsey Carr, Carmen Huff, and Avery Walts were awarded scholarships for their work and attitude during the week. In addition, Kat Brewer won the $500 David Adams Scholarship for her outstanding photojournalism work, effort, and participation during the week.
These FC journalists demonstrated great dedication and commitment in representing the Bagpiper and Bartizan staffs at HSJI. Congratulations to them for another outstanding week.
