With this being the last week of VMC Session 2, we’ve decided to collect moments of their journalistic experience as they begun to investigate, edit and produce their various pieces. Twelve individuals have utilized their knowledge of journalism, mentors and various equipment to achieve a finished project that shows their dedication and diligence. These are a few photos that depict the essence of their trials, accomplishments and publishing process.
