Community Journalism Class Visits Washington, D.C.

On April 27, 2012, students from Nick McBride's Community Journalism class joined the Commerce High School students they've worked with throughout the year for a weekend trip to Washington, D.C. The group visited the Newseum, the U.S. Captiol and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial. During a tour of NPR studios, they met All Things Considered co-host and UMass Journalism alum Audie Cornish.

"In a word, the trip was inspiring," said McBride. "The expression on these students' faces is why I became a teacher in the first place."
