The journalism class from Crenshaw Christian Academy recently attended J-Day at Troy University.

J-Day was a workshop event designed for high school journalism students and sponsored by Troy University’s Hall School of Journalism and Communication.

Students attended different areas of photography, broadcast journalism and newspaper and yearbook layout and design.

Railey Ayers was featured in a 90-second video prompt with Jeff Shearer of WSFA TV.

One student, Rachel Hudson said she learned a lot about the composition aspect of photography.

“It will help me to take much better pictures,” Hudson said.

In addition to Ayers and Hudson, Crenshaw Christian’s Chelsea Lewis, Brittany Lester, Ashlynn Kilpatrick, Jordan Hall, Haley Weeks, Taylor Evans, and Isabella Jackson attended the event.
