As I have been considering our work with photography in the journalism course, I have started following NPR's blog on the Summer Olympics, "The Torch." Because we have limited opportunity for sports photography at seminary, we can learn about this aspect of journalism through following the coverage of the Olympics this summer.
One of our guest speakers for the journalism class this year will be Steve Ritchie. Steve is not only the director of the Benedictine Foundation of Oregon, the development office of the Benedictine Sisters of Mount Angel. He is also a local award-winning track coach and freelance journalist who covered the Olympic trials for the Statesman Journal. He will share his sports writing experience with us during his visit.
