Creekview High teacher selected for national journalism program

CANTON, Ga. -- An English teacher at Canton's Creekview High School was one of only 165 teachers nationwide selected to participate in the country's most intensive training program for high school journalism advisors.

John Bradford completed the 2011 Reynolds High School Journalism Institute at Arizona State University in June. He was chosen from a field of 443 applicants -- the program's most competitive year ever.

"These teachers impart the life skills of writing, reading, communicating and critical thinking," said Diana Mitsu Klos, senior project director of the American Society of News Editors, which sponsored the program. "All students, not just aspiring journalists, benefit from these basic skills. And every student gains from learning about ethical decision-making, news literacy and the First Amendment."

The Reynolds High School Journalism Institute is part of a national effort to grow an informed citizenry that can discern quality news and create multimedia youth journalists.
