Today at the high school journalism workshop was crammed full of information. The students interviewed journalism professionals, learned the basics of writing a lead, and were taught an overview of libel and ethics as it applies to journalism. Later, students got a lesson in basic photography from Southern Miss instructor Dr. Steve Coleman and News Content Advisor Chuck Cook. Then the students -- loaner cameras from Canon in hand -- roamed the campus with Chuck and chaperones Yolanda Cruz and Jonathan McGowan to practice their news skills. Photo, video, radio, broadcast, and text lessons continue tomorrow.
