Archer Student Media Attends National High School Journalism Convention

Twenty students from our Archer Student Media program—including The Oracle and Hestia's Flame—spent four inspiring days at the National High School Journalism Convention in Boston from Wednesday, November 1 - Sunday, November 5. As well as touring the city, the journalism students heard members of The Boston Globe Spotlight team speak about the importance of investigative journalism during their keynote address and attended a plethora of journalism workshops. A few attendees also got to catch up with Oracle alum Maya Wernick ’18, who is now a program organizer for Best Buddies International, where she oversees the program for the entire Boston Public School System. 
In addition to presenting sessions on The Oracle's columnist and podcaster process and moderating two open forum panels on censorship, Head of Scholastic Journalism Kristin Taylor presented a session titled "Obtaining Press Freedom in Private Schools" alongside Maia A. ’24 and Siena F. ’25.
Archer left Boston with special distinction. Meredith H. ’26 placed first nationally for NSPA's Multimedia Sports Story of the Year, and The Oracle placed third overall for Best of Show Website, in the Schools Under 1800 division.
