A hearty Yearbooks Blog congratulations to all the Walsworth schools who fared well over the weekend in the Pacemaker and Best of Show contests at the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention in Anaheim.
Four Walsworth yearbooks were among those that won NSPA Pacemaker awards, including the yearbooks from Arrowhead Christian Academy, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School, Shawnee Mission East High School and Liberty High School.
A packed crowd took in the keynote address on Friday afternoon at the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention in Anaheim to hear sisters Laura and Lisa Ling discuss their careers in journalism, and Laura’s 2009 ordeal of being detained in North Korea while working on a documentary.
Lisa Ling began the address with a salute to Jim Jordan, the English teacher and yearbook adviser for both girls when they were high schools students at Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, Calif.
The JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention is coming to Anaheim this week. Walsworth and the Yearbooks Blog will be there, and we want to hear from everyone else that will be there too.
