Muncie Mentors Mooresville


by Whitney Smither
   This previous Friday, Ball State University hosted Mooresville High School’s journalism classes along with more than 1,500 high school journalists and their school advisors across Indiana for their annual celebration of J-Day.
    Students that participate in Pulse, broadcast, and Wagon Trails traveled to Muncie, Indiana and had the chance to attend over sixty different sessions in various areas of media taught by advisors including the keynote speaker, Joe Ward. Ward is a well-known sports graphics editor whose career has been anything but ordinary over his course of two decades with the New York Times.
   Prior to J-Day, students and advisors submitted their best work to be reviewed. Near seven hundred entries were presented to judges to critique the work from staffs in newspaper, yearbook, magazines, online, and broadcast journalism. Students’ work was put into separate categories of superior, excellent, and deserving of an honorable mention. In the broadcast category, sophomore Elizabeth Brock had an honorable mention for one of her feature stories.
    “It was a great feeling to know my work was being noticed state wide,” Brock said.
   Wagon Trails also earned an honorable mention for Traditional YB Design.
   “It was awesome to win honorable mention,” Olivia Ferrill said. “It was a very fun experience and I can’t wait to put everything I learned to use.”
