I journeyed to Everglades National Park with a photographer, visual journalism student Johnfrank Dieguez, Friday to report a project for my CNJ 595 In-Depth Reporting for Convergent Media, which I took last semester.
Our subject was La’Keisha Harris, a law enforcement park ranger. Johnfrank took the pictures and I captured audio; we make a good team.
The class project will eventually result in audio slideshows and text stories about various National Park Service employees for the agency’s diversity recruitment program Web site, the link to which I’ll post when our piece for the site is posted. The site was designed by another class, CVJ 341, last semester.
Additional student groups will visit other parks during the course of this semester for the site.
