HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (3/6/14) – It is often said, "Good things come in small packages."
The small package in this case is MaCallister Gray, or Callie, as her friends call her, 8th grade student at Browning Springs Middle School.
As part of Student Shadow Day Feb. 28, Callie Gray shadowed SurfKY News Group copyeditor Maureen Berry.
Here is Callie's account of her Student Shadow Day at SurfKY News Group.
"On Friday, I shadowed Maureen Berry at SurfKY News group. It was a great experience, and gave me some insight on writing in a professional setting.
I learned how they publish their news, how they edit the photos and how they write about different topics. SurfKY publishes stories into categories by community.
I thought it was cool how they did it and learned a few things through their articles online.
We talked about the different styles of writing, in addition to journalism, like screen writing, web design, magazine writing, book publishing and graphic arts.
I think I would choose screenwriting or book publishing. My goal is to write a fantasy fiction novel or script for a movie or television.
I would like to shadow at SurfKY News again. I really liked it.
I told Maureen I also like to draw and she asked me to draw something for her.
I drew the angel because I've always liked fantasy things. Normal stuff is sometimes boring. Fantasy and Sci-fi is really interesting to me and I've drawn things relating to it since I was a kid. My dad also drew a lot of fantasy creatures when he was in his teens. That's where I get my inspiration."
