Student Leaders of The Log Attend Harvard Journalism Conference

Five senior leaders from The Log, Loomis Chaffee's student newspaper, traveled to Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., on December 1 for a student journalism conference hosted by The Harvard Crimson, the nation's oldest continuously published daily college newspaper.

The Loomis cohort included senior Liam Scott, co-editor-in-chief; seniors Stacy Park and Minna Gao, managing editors; senior Ashley Chung, director of design; and senior Shlok Sharma, web content editor. The Log faculty advisor, Jessica Hsieh '08, also attended.

The conference offered workshops and seminars on topics related to student publications, and the Loomis students took part in a writing competition. Cathy Hyeon '18, who is a freshman at Harvard, met up with her former Log colleagues while they were in town for the event.

Liam said The Log leaders are excited to put into action some of what they learned at the conference in upcoming issues.
