Unis Middle School Our journalism class has been chosen to exhibit photos at the Arab American National Museum from July to Mid-August. We would really appreciate if you could take some of your time this summer to visit the museum.
Elizabeth Skene, the curator of collection said, “We’re proud of our local schools. We think it’s unique what you guys are doing and proud so we would want to show the rest of the community.”
Our class has accomplished many achievements this year.We had two winners at the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association Conference:
Maha Kandil-Elsayed won 3rd place for best photo.
Jamila Nasser won 3rd place for best feature story.
Journalism isn’t only about the writing.
We attended numerous field trips and met many important journalists from around the country Along with mayors, editors, photojournalists, multi-media specialists, body builders, animal trainers, cancer patients, musicians, the list goes on and on… One of our students, Kassem Beydoun, even received an email from Oprah. You name them, we’ve met them.
Many unbelievably talents journalists have visited our classroom and gave us pointers to make us better at what we do. We have met environmentalists, air pollution specialist, weathermen, and published authors. Leann Bazzi even spoke with singer Leann Rimes’ publicist. You name them, we’ve tried to meet them.
Once again we’d like to ask for your presence at the Arab American National Museum at 13624 Michigan Ave., Dearborn. Our journalism class will continue on through next year. There will be several new stories and photos from students in the class.
