Publications students went to Franklin College for the Indiana High School Press Association convention. The  newspaper and yearbook staffs went to seminars about improving their journalistic skills. Awards were also handed out to both staffs.

“People get an idea of if they want to go into journalism in the future, they get an idea of what they are getting into and a lot of good information about journalism,” yearbook editor-in-chief senior Emily Griffin said.

Philanthropist and decorated journalist George Srour was the keynote speaker. He worked to create schools in Uganda with Building Tomorrow Inc. Srour was named one of the 100 most powerful people in Indiana by Indianapolis Monthly in 2007. Srour spoke of his time as a student journalist at North Central and his founding of the DoG street journal at St. Mary’s College.

The convention offered many different seminars on design, writing, multimedia, and various other aspects of journalism. The seminars were taught by college journalism students and journalism teachers.

Many members of both staffs won awards.

  • Griffin won 1st place for yearbook spot news photo and 3rd place in yearbook divisional sports
  • Seniors Nick Vare and Chloe Sell got 3rd place for civic journalism
  • 2012 graduate Jilly Burns won an honorable mention for newspaper sports photo
