Summer camping



Locust Fork Elementary School was the site once again this year for the Summer Journalism Camp, sponsored by the Blount County Education Foundation and taught by Joanna McCay. The Blount Countian’s Rob Rice visited with the students last week and gave a mini-workshop on journalism, the difference between real and fake news and the fundamentals of reporting, in general. Pictured, in no particular order, are Cori Barwick, Mackenzie Bowman-Todd, Faith Evans, Hope Evans, Austyn Joiner, Ashlyn McGee, Kasey Muir, Jenna Owen and Jillian Rush – all from Locust Fork, and Jaden McKane and John McRae – from Cleveland.
