JEA Mentor Nora Stephens took this photo at Lee High School in Huntsville and provides this report.
Michelle Sisson (on left), one of my mentees, is the creative writing teacher at Lee High School. Beth Pugh (on right) was my newspaper editor at Huntsville High in 1989.
Beth holds a master’s in journalism and has edited two needlework magazines for Hoffman Publishing in Birmingham. She is back in Huntsville establishing her own business and has graciously offered time to help Michelle and her class learn InDesign in order to establish a literary magazine at Lee for next fall.
Beth and I visited Michelle’s class to see the results of an online project that will become a mini mag to use for recruiting and PR.
I have been thrilled to work with Beth again and to observe her patiently working with this group.
Editor’s note: Mentoring Monday is a feature on the JEA Mentoring blog. We’d like to feature photos of short stories about the JEA mentors, their mentees and the high school journalism students. Please send your photo, caption and story to 2jdodd (at) gmail (dot) com.
