Welcome, Greene Team!

It’s the first full day of the 2016 Robert W. Greene Summer Institute for High School Journalists, and already our students have displayed incredible talent and skills. We had a great discussion about news drivers after “News Over Breakfast,” and spent some time talking about where stories come from and the basics of reporting. They’re getting a lesson in photojournalism from Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer John Conrad Williams right now.

This is always a highlight of the students’ week, and it’s not hard to see why. Professor Williams forges a connection with each and every one of them and makes a complicated subject accessible and fun.

Moments like these remind me of why this program is so special. Welcome, Greene Team. Here’s to another wonderful week!
