My Students

My students are a group of hardworking students who believe that their school has interesting stories and that they should be the ones to tell those stories.

America needs journalists, and my students strive to be the best young journalists they can be.

Just because they are high school students, that does not mean they can't act like the professional journalists they hope to be one day.

Helping these young journalists means the next generation's stories, and the right to tell them, are protected and in good hands.

My Project

My students tell the amazing stories that go on at our school and in our community, but they are missing that visual punch that enhances the story. The 50mm lens, dubbed the Nifty Fifty is an affordable option that should be a staple in every photographer and videographers bag.

With these lenses and tripods, student journalists have more tools to tell a better story and make a bigger impact.

With this equipment, my students can take their projects to the next level. Just because they are student journalism, it doesn't mean they can't produce professional level work. This equipment will go a long way in helping with that.
