Journalism Students Share Story Corps Interviews
The heart of journalism is telling the stories that may not get told otherwise. In Karla Dejean’s journalism class, students are finding these stories on Story Corps and sharing them with their classmates. Story Corps collects and shares stories from around the country that are big and small. In a recent class, senior Grace Copfer shared an interview with 84-year-old Herman Heyn, who discussed his passion for astronomy. Copfer said she chose to share Heyn’s story because it illustrated how people can learn and discover a new passion outside of a classroom.
