HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISTS ATTEND HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY’S PRESS DAY
Wantagh High School’s aspiring journalism students were among several hundred students who attended Hofstra University’s annual Press Day, held on Dec. 11.
Journalism teacher Peter Kravitz and the students participated in an interesting seminar and panel discussion led by WABC-TV reporter N.J. Burkett, Hofstra journalism associate professor Kelly Fincham and Genetta Adams, managing editor of The Root.
Mr. Kravitz noted that Press Day was not only engaging, but an excellent opportunity for the journalism students to improve their skills and to witness firsthand the issues professional journalists face.
Through a commitment to educational excellence in a secure, supportive environment, the Wantagh Public Schools shall inspire students to develop a strong sense of individual worth and respect for others, to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers, and to fulfill themselves as concerned citizens in a diverse world.
