A handful of Rockland High School’s journalism students, Dawn Bille, Devin Gilmore, Molly Hurley, Leah O’Bryan, Georgia Panagiotidis, and Meghan Lee, attended the New England Scholastic Press Association’s 65th annual conference on Friday, May, 3. They spent the day attending workshops at Boston University. Some of the classes they attended were Tips and Tricks for Photoshop and InDesign, TV news, and What it is like to study journalism in college. Mrs. Lannin-Cotton, accompanied by her twin sister, Joanne Lannin, presented  a workshop at the conference called Developing websites with wordpress, and other platforms.

At the end of the conference All-New England awards were presented to school newspapers, yearbooks, and literary magazines in various classes depending on school size. Our very own school newspaper, The Veritas, won second place in Class III in the All-New England competition. The Veritas was entered in the contest for both its print and on/line newspapers.

Devin Gilmore and Georgia Panagiotidis received Special Achievement Awards for their photography posted on the Veritas Website.  Both also report for the Veritas print edition.

Rockland High School has made everyone proud at how well they did at the conference and the students who attended the field trip represented Rockland very well.
