So after three full intensive days in Kentucky I am excited to be back in Elon, N.C. and ready to start sharing everything I learned and improving our paper. Although we were all upset that we didn’t win Pacemaker or Online Pacemaker, our loss just gives us more motivation to make our paper better and continue to work toward perfection.
All six of us that attended were overwhelmed with the amount of information we received and the number of ideas we had swimming through our heads as a result. After each session we left charged with a new energy. We were excited to return to North Carolina and start incorporating all this new knowledge into our own work and The Pendulum as a whole.
I am looking forward to see the organization grow. We can tell better stories. We can effectively enhance elements of a news story. We can bridge the print and online components. We will continue to strive for excellence.
