2017 Community Newspaper Field Trip

March 18, 2017

Jack Waddell

The Lee’s Summit Tribune will become part of the classroom for the University of Missouri School of Journalism, when journalism student Jack Waddell will join the newspaper staff for a week of hands-on publishing experience.

The School of Journalism, the world’s oldest, was founded by Dean Walter Williams in 1908. Today the venerable School has well over 1,200 students representing almost every state and more than two dozen foreign countries. Alumni of the School circle the globe.

Students have been working with community newspapers as part of a class taught by Jim Sterling, former Missouri newspaperman. Field trips like this have been a part of curriculum for more than 50 years. 

Jack will be at the Tribune during Spring Break to learn first hand how non-metro newspapers operate. He is a senior at MU from Lee’s Summit, studying Journalism, Psychology and Sociology.

At MU he has been active in his fraternity, Theta Chi and serves as chapter scholarship chairman. After graduation, Jack plans to attend law school and would like to work in media law.
