Stuart Students Will Attend Journalism Conference

Two students at J.E.B. Stuart High School, Garrison Grow and Victoria Haver, were chosen as National Youth Correspondents for the 2015 Washington Journalism and Media Conference.

Grow and Haver will join a group selected from across the nation for an intensive study of journalism and media. They were chosen based on academic accomplishments and a demonstrated interest and excellence in journalism and media studies.

They will  participate in hands-on, experiential learning through decision-making simulations that challenge them to solve problems and explore the creative, practical, and ethical tensions inherent in journalism and media. They will also attend lectures from prominent journalists and other media professionals.

Last year’s slate of lecturers included NBC’s Hoda Kotb, Brian Lamb from C-Span, Carol Guzy from The Washington Post and Peter Doocy from Fox News. The conference will take place at George Mason University from July 12 – 17. For more information, visit wjmc.gmu.edu.
