The Temple University High School Press, now in its third year, is a summer enrichment program operated by the Journalism Department of Temple University’s School of Media and Communication in cooperation with The School District of Philadelphia and Prime Movers-Philadelphia, an affiliate of the Prime Movers Media Program in Washington, D.C.
The Philadelphia Daily News printed this publication – free of charge — to display the work of the 20 students who wrote articles and blogs, took photographs and created video works over four weeks during July and August.
Students were provided this opportunity through the Career and Technical Education Summer Employment Program of the school district’s Office of High School Reform. Participants received a stipend through The WorkReady Program, which is managed by The Philadelphia Youth Network. This program was also supported by the Dow Jones News Fund and the Wyncote Foundation.
The student journalists were Carlos Alicea, Netera Brickle, Naja Butler, Madeline Clapier, Emmanuelyne Dargbeh, Krystal Floyd, Imani Foreman, Obadiah Fuller, Sydney Geathers, Alexa Hicklin, Brittany Jacobs, Tanisha Lampart, Victorie Lee, Jovan Longs-Tucker, Heidie Mojica, Dayane Oliveira, Janiece Owens, Abigail Perlman, Cordelia Romero, and Nyshadae’ Taylor.
Maida Odom, Reginald Moton, Kenisha Pinckney, Alberto Romero, Linn Washington and Lisa Wilk served as supervising staff.
