So proud of my Opinion Writers for all their great work this week!
Learning knowledge of writing
Decades ago, a skinny kid who used to be me delighted in discovering Chip Scanlan – reporter, writer, editor, author, teacher, writing coach extraordinaire. He has been a long-distance inspiration and mentor ever since. I put Scanlan up there in my pantheon of journalistic heroes, in the company of the likes of Jimmy Breslin, David Simon'Alan Smithee, Joan Didion, Tom Wolfe -- and editors/teachers, like my best at College Park, Carl Stepp; David M Ettlin, the longtime Baltimore Sun rewrite, who turned my bumbling dictation into sterling copy; one of Chip’s heroes and co-conspirators, the late Donald Murray, a Pulitzer Prize-winner who went on to serve as the beloved and much-admired writing coach at The Boston Globe, then at the Poynter Institute; and Anne Zusy, who taught me so much and saved me so often when I interned at NYT in another life, but alas, she also left us too soon....I have tried to apply Scanlan’s wisdom and have shared it with countless students, reporters whom I’ve edited -- and with my favorite aspiring journalist, my son Joseph Gately, as he learns the rudiments of the craft as a staff writer for The Hall, the student newspaper at Calvert Hall High School. I’ve long known complacency stands out as one of the perils of doing daily journalism, and I think of the words of a wise cardinal: “Growth is the only evidence of life.” If you want to grow as a reporter, a writer, a storyteller, an editor, I heartily recommend you tap into Chip Scanlan’s invaluable advice. And he makes learning riveting and fun......Check him out on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/chip.scanlan), at @chipscanlan, Chip Scanlan at LinkedIn, [email protected]. And look for Scanlan to soon revive his wildly popular “Chip On Your Shoulder.” https://www.poynter.org/person/chipscan

Scholastic journalism workshops and outreach programs for students and teachers The High School Journalism Institute offers pre-college journalism and media workshops for students and teachers each July on the Indiana University-Bloomington campus.

[10/02/21]   And more from Ryan Gunterman -- Being a lab assistant for awesome teachers like Kim Green, Tony Willis, Claude Cookman, etc. Also, teaching photo classes with Meredith Bledsoe and debriefing at Lennie's :)

[10/02/21]   Fall Saturday morning memories -- from Lori Overmeyer -- Shenanigans with Jim Lang!

[09/25/21]   Jim Lang shares -- Sharing great ideas and collaborating with great counselors and educators; seeing my own students learn and thrive on the IU campus.

[09/25/21]   Two words from Suzann Mitten Owen --Summer heat

[09/25/21]   Saturday morning memory from Pamela (Boyd) Carter --It's hard to list just one! My favorite memories include times as a counselor: monitoring "lights out," by counting windows with walkie talkies (we knew if it was an overhead light or flashlight), playing Taboo, bread sticks, and making life-long friends with some wildly-talented and fun professionals. Miss those days!

[09/03/21]   It's a Friday double memory drop -- Sarah Nichols shares: So many wonderful memories from the years as a counselor and then as an instructor, but mostly just the funny discussions in the office and the inside jokes surrounding the log we kept of everything happening while we were on duty as counselors. I also loved early morning and late night walks with other instructors as we talked about our workshop sessions and swapped stories from the day.

[09/03/21]   Friday memories from Tim Dohrer -- As a student, I remember Dennis Cripe's Editor in Chief section as being crucial to my leadership the following year of The Guardian at Elk Grove HS (IL). We were in Read Hall with 3 other members of the staff. I remember we missed most of the closing night dance because we were all trying to finish our final projects! I got a $500 HSJI scholarship which cemented my decision to apply to only ONE college: Indiana University. As a counselor and head counselor, I have so many positive memories! I loved my fellow counselors, especially Pam Coats who became my evil twin partner in crime for two years. I loved working with Jack, Linda, Tony, and the other instructors. Since I was an RA at Willkie, I knew the building and grounds well, which helped when kids locked themselves out of their rooms or tried sneaking around at night! But my favorite memories were the staff and counselors hanging out in the office or one of the lounges after lights out.

[08/21/21]   And one more from Cynthia Walker -- The “family” atmosphere and being SO worried I’d be “caught” trying to create the HSJI yearbook that was commemorating Gretchen’s Directorship of Institute

[08/21/21]   HSJI memories for your Saturday afternoon from Marah Yankey:
I have SO many fond memories of my summer as a counselor, but a few of my favorite include: playing "Fajita!" -- an absurd, LOUD game made up by the senior counselors that included slapping a wiffe ball from person to person in a circle while also shouting Mexican restaurant menu items; STEAK DAY.. a final hoo-rah at a Steakhouse in which counselors were forced to eat as much steak as possible in order to beat the prior-year staff's total weight in ounces.

[08/15/21]   Memories from Audrey Mathison -- The night when one of my PA students caused a fire in Wright Hall at dinner time. Accidentally of course. But let’s just say that Mary B was not happy with me. Then there was the day I told my lab students that journalists don’t use the expression “a lot” but if they do they spell it correctly as two words. One of my young Hoosier editors said, “Even in Indiana??” I come from Pennsylvania, remember.

[08/15/21]   A HSJI memory from Rachel Wisinski: I loved being able to work with young students who were so passionate about journalism, specifically yearbooks. It was refreshing to see and very fulfilling to be pass my knowledge and experience on to them.

[07/31/21]   A Saturday morning HSJI memory shared by Melanie Mason --

I loved helping all the students in the classrooms as a teaching assistant. I mostly remember working with Greg Mosley's classes because there was never a dull moment with him at the helm. I also fondly remember working with the office staff to prepare everything - including being crammed into Linda's office at a tiny table stuffing envelopes while she and Jack hollered back and forth down the hallway.

We are proud to share another one of our 75 Distinguished Alumni, Beth Wood. Wood was integral in reshaping and revitalizing IU's PR program. Upon her passing in 2009, the IU PRSSA chapter was renamed in her honor.

[07/23/21]   Another memory shared by Jamie Zega: I loved working with students on their stories and problem-solving with them during the institute. But after their time with us, I loved seeing determined HSJI students filter into IU and the IDS years later.

[07/16/21]   Memory from Linda Johnson, Office Guru: I have many fond memories, but since this is the year of the cicadas, it makes me think about 17 years ago when campus was swarming with them. Susie Coleman and I were having lunch at Forest Cafe, when she very calmly said, "Don't freak out, but you have a cicada on your neck.” Well, I jumped out of my seat and was shaking like a dog trying to get it off. What a sight!

What a wonderful time last night visiting with all these wonderful people and more during our HSJI 75th Anniversary Reunion for counselors, office staff and instructors. We had folks from the 1950s to present -- it was so nice to hear stories from each person that joined us!

We know we missed some of you and we apologize for that!
I am vowing right now to work with Teresa White to get something organized in person next year where everyone can come together for another evening of laughs and reminiscing. I believe someone last night labeled it 75+1!

Have a great day HSJI world -- here's to another 75 great years!
