Journalism Students Enjoy a Trip to the Newseum
by Cate Tauriello
On November 12th, the WHS Lion’s Pride team went on a trip to the nation’s capital to explore the Newseum. Students were given inside looks to the developments of the history of journalism.
Ricky Kellerman, student reporter, said “My favorite part was paying $23.04 at the food court.” Kellerman is not the only one who wasn’t impressed with the food prices at the Newseum.
“The balcony on the top of the building gave a really cool view of the Capital. It was definitely one of the best parts. “ says Adam Hostetter, assistant sports editor.
Some students enjoyed other exhibits like opinion editor, Mollie Green, “My favorite part was watching the 4-D movie; it was really cool because whenever a gunshot would go off, the seats would vibrate and it made me feel like I was actually there.”
Sasha Mazikins, opinion editor, says “My favorite part was when we got to choose a backdrop for the student newscasters, and Grainne’s was probably funniest segment. Also, the Berlin Wall was really fascinating.”
The Newseum is definitely a little pricey from the admission price to the food court, but overall, students agree the trip was worth it and an informative experience.
