Madison County High School harbors a lot of passionate writers in its Journalism Club. Currently, there are 21 students in the MCHS Journalism Club, which is overseen by Glyndell Presley. The Journalism Club is made up of the 19 students in the Journalism 1 class and the two students in the Journalism 2 class, along with ninth graders that are learning more about journalism. The students in Journalism 1 learn about writing articles and the different fundamentals of journalism, while those in Journalism 2 are the editorial and layout staff.
Students in the Journalism Club are creative, responsible students interested in upholding the core principles of journalism and media production, which are truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and accountability. As a result, the members of this club have a higher calling as both club members and students.
As members of the Journalism Club, the bright young students learn about print, broadcast and public relations through hands-on experience. Club members are also expected to devote time outside of the classroom for different assignments.
During club meetings held during school hours, club members discuss upcoming events and story assignments.
Presley is proud to announce that her students are very excited about journalism. Presley has her bachelor's in broadcast journalism and her master's degree in journalism. She previously taught at FAMU and enjoys teaching the young, impressionable minds that embody her classes.
