NABJ visits Webster


By Alana President with Donte McElroy

On Friday, December 18th, Daniel Webster eighth graders talked to a group of journalists about their lives in the media industry. These professionals are a part of an organization called the National Association of Black Journalists. We met Phil Thompson, a sport reporter for the Chicago Tribune and Gail Walker, the president of EnviroCom Incorporated. Mr. Thompson is the Vice President of Print Journalism and Ms. Walker is the Parliamentarian for NABJ Chicago.

But guess what?

We met another guest named Art Norman. He’s on NBC channel 5 News. Have you heard of him? All of the NABJ guest taught us something and he taught us about broadcasting. We discussed our future career plans with Mr. Norman and he challenged us to work hard and be successful. We spent most of the time learning from him while he encouraged us to be leaders. It was a great day at Webster school.
