Bishop Kenny High School Multi Media Design II students attended the Florida Scholastic Press Association (FSPA) District 2 workshop at the University of North Florida on October 4, 2019. More than 100 students attended the workshop that was open to all Northeast Florida District members.
The students attended a variety of sessions including, videography, storytelling, and caption writing. The sessions were led by many industry professionals with a highlight being Brent Martineau from ESPN. Bishop Kenny senior, Jack Trent ’20, was also asked to give a presentation on Advanced Digital Storytelling focusing on cinematography and reporting techniques.
The day culminated with excitement for the BK students as their teacher, Mrs. Dawn Huskey was presented with the “Teacher of the Year” award for District 2. Will Joyce ’20 said, “Mrs. Huskey is very determined to help her students reach their full potential, she is a master at helping us take our projects to the next level.” Mrs. Huskey works with students taking Multi-Media II, Yearbook, Creative Photography, and CrusaderVision which is a student- run broadcast production team. “Taking a student’s vision for a project and turning it into reality is Mrs. Huskey’s special gift,” Natalia Vinas ’20 stated. Mrs. Huskey will compete against the other six FSPA district nominees during the State FSPA convention which will be held in Orlando on April 23-25, 2020.
