Reminder: Emily Smith, Pittsburg High School journalism adviser, to speak today

By Collegian Media Group

Emily Smith, Pittsburg High School journalism adviser, will present a lecture at 11:30 a.m. Monday, July 17, in 106 Kedzie Hall. The K-State community is invited to attend.

Smith advised the Pittsburg High School The Booster Redux newspaper staff, who reported that the school's new principal inflated some accomplishments and invented others. The result changed the school board's mind and gave the young Kansas journalists national attention.

Smith's presentation is part of the Flint Hills Publications Workshop that runs through Tuesday, July 18, on the Manhattan campus. The workshop is offered by Collegian Media Group, the nonprofit corporation that publishes The Collegian, Royal Purple and Manhappenin'.
