2021-22 Student Journalism Projects
Below are just some of the many excellent student projects shared and highlighted from the 2021-22 school year.
Cabrini University – The Loquitur
The students have built an online relationship connection with a young woman who used to live in Wayne, Pennsylvania, where Cabrini University is located. Check back soon for continuing coverage.
The student journalists of The Loquitur jumped on the BIG breaking-news story on the leaked draft of the Supreme Court decision.

Tyrone Area High School – The Eagle Eye News
The local Chamber of Commerce sold and hung banners in downtown Tyrone to honor local veterans. The students started a project to write biographical stories about the veterans on the banners and created QR code posters to put on the light poles so pedestrians could use their phones to read about the veterans on the poles. Six stories were done last fall and more are in production right now. The plan is for this to be an ongoing project and add more stories each year!

York College of Pennsylvania – The Spartan
The Spartan has been collaborating with The York Dispatch to give student writers’ talents a much bigger audience.
A few weeks ago when masks became optional, class members fanned out to get student reaction. The story appeared in The Spartan (see link below) as well as in The York Dispatch.
