DCI spends the day at the Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism at USC. A dozen DCI students attended USC’s High School Journalism Day along with another 100 students from eight other high schools in the Los Angeles area.
According to the Daily Trojan, which DCI was featured in, “The biannual event, which is in its fourth year, began as an initiative of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists in collaboration with Jaime Carias, the Annenberg Civic Engagement Coordinator. The event has expanded to include the National Association for Black Journalists and the Annenberg Latino Student Association. The agenda included an introduction by Willow Bay, the director of Annenberg, a keynote speech by KABC-TV news anchor and USC alum Marc Brown, and a variety of smaller workshops on a plethora of journalism and communication techniques.” Read the full article from the Daily Trojan here.
DCI students learned a lot from the workshops that were led by USC professors and were inspired by touring the school’s impressive media lab and campus. DCI greatly appreciates and thanks USC for this wonderful educational experience.
