 Channel 7 News Visits Vernon's Journalism Class

Vernon's yearbook and journalism class had the exciting experience of a visit from the Channel 7 News.   Martin Orozco visited Vernon campus to share with students his exciting job. Students crafted questions to ask him and took detailed notes based on his responses. They learned how all of the equipment works, how the news station responds to breaking news, and interviewing and photographing techniques.   Vernon's yearbook/journalism class publishes a monthly school newsletter where they use their interviewing, reporting, and photography skills to create a document that is shared with both students and families. In addition to this monthly newsletter, they also use the same skills to create the school yearbook. Thank you to Channel 7 News for providing such a memorable experience for Vernon students.
