AHS journalism symposium draws local scribes

AHS 300

The editors of the Arlington High Journalism Club, Claire Kitzmiller and Isabella Scopetski, invited residents to hear a panel of journalists, some nationally known, to a symposium 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec.7, in Old Hall.

The event was free, but if you enjoyed the return of the AHS newspaper last year or hope to see a new issue, there was food for sale to raise funds for the next printing. The Ponder Report has been largely an online publication since 2011.

This symposium was an opportunity for students and staff to learn more about journalism and how it's changing with the media and our current political climate. Audience members had time to ask their own questions as well as meet the panelists.

Panelists scheduled to take part were:

-- David Whitford of Arlington, a nationally known journalist speaking to the changing dialogue about journalism and how that affects our democracy;

-- Dave Denison of Arlington, an experienced national journalist, who worked was editor of The Arlington Advocate (1993-'94) and had pieces published in The New York Times Magazine and The Boston Globe; he currently works as editor for The Baffler;

-- Brenda Mahoney, a digital journalist working at ACMi;

-- Abbi Matheson, former multimedia journalist for The Advocate who is a Web producer for; and

-- Heather Beasley Doyle, a writer who has freelanced for The Advocate.
