WHSSPA moves conference to the capital

Laramie County Community College will host the Wyoming High School Press Association’s annual conference on Oct. 2.

For the first time since 1990, the conference will be leaving Casper and relocating to Cheyenne due to logistical errors and problematic technology at the previous locations. The conference is expected to bring 200 high school students from across the state.

“LCCC will offer students a better learning environment and a better opportunity to use more advanced facilities,” said Jake Sherlock, a mass media and journalism instructor at LCCC

Activities such as hands-on practice with publishing and broadcast software, workshops ran by the region’s top media professionals, and a crash course in photography by a professional photographer will be available. The speaker for the 2017 conference will be Carrie Faust, a journalism instructor and high school media advisor at Smoky Hills High School in Aurora, Colorado.

Wingspan Student Media will also host a movie night for the conference attendees on Oct. 1.
