Leland Middle School – On Friday, September 3, Teen Scene, Inc. principals Gerald Decker and Eric Mens, attended the first meeting of the Leland Middle School (LMS) newly formed Journalism Club. Ruth Thompson, Success Coach, Communities in Schools (CIS), facilitated the meeting. We will guide and mentor the students weekly as they work to develop appropriate material for publication in what will become LMS’ dedicated school paper within The Teen Scene. Doing so will allow the students to improve their writing skills. At some future point, they will begin to lean the necessary business skills to effectively manage their own school paper within The Teen Scene. We thank Dr. McDuffie and Mrs. Thompson for their efforts in helping bring this club to fruition. We particularly thank the following students who are currently participating in this program: 

De’Andre Jones, Grade 6
Tanecia Howard, Grade 6
Andrew Aydell, Grade 7
Addison Martin, Grade 7
Kaylee Allred, Grade 8
Keiran Daniels Grade 8

Early College High School – Dan Breneau, Director of the Writing Academy (see related story in this issue), joined Gerald Decker at the first meeting of the Early College High School (ECHS) Journalism Club. Following the footprint of the club in LMS, students will work to develop their own school paper within The Teen Scene. Teacher Laura Askue will serve as faculty advisor to the club. We want to thank Principal Ms. Absher and Ms. Askue for their support in making this possible. Journalism Club members to date include:

Jazmine Garcia Grade 11
Christopher King Grad 9
Kavleigh Quinn Grade 10 
Anna Adams 
Milton Brown 
Arwen Collins
