It was a truly interesting meeting to hear all the haphazard stories of how my fellow Reynolds Institute Summer Fellows stumbled, pursued, and were otherwise volunteered into Journalism. As random as that was, there was Mr. Milton Coleman, with his singular purpose of making us better journalists and better journalism teachers, so we can lead the next wave of journalists toward the brave new world of the twenty-first century. Quite a contrast was he; this tall, soft-spoken, yet focused man who has weathered the storms of tremendous social change as a Journalist and participant. His steely purpose was quite motivating.

Thirty-four high school journalism educators from around the country traveled to Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in June 2010 for the ASNE Reynolds High School Journalism Institute. This blog carries their thoughts and information about the program.
The institute, one of five held around the country, is made possible by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation administered by the American Society of News Editors.
