The Rookie Reporter program is a collaborative effort between the UCM Digital Media Production program and Warrensburg High School. WHS students interested in journalism will be writing, photographing, filming and editing stories of interest to WHS students, faculty, family and friends. These stories will then be published under the WHS News heading on digitalBURG.com.
Carol Hassler is overseeing the program at Warrensburg High School. She says the Rookie Reporter program is a great way to teach students what it is like to be a professional journalist.
“This collaboration is a great opportunity for our students to get authentic experience and also explore UCM’s journalism program,” Hassler says. “It also provides a way for us to share what’s going on at WHS with the Warrensburg community and beyond.”
