Shelby County 4-H members tour The Light and Champion facilities

Shelby County 4-H members who are part of a Saturday photography group got a tour of the Light and Champion Saturday afternoon.

Editor and Publisher Mike Elswick along with Light and Champion Advertising Director Stephanie Elswick and Account Executive Ginia Hooper were on hand to explain the process of putting out a weekly newspaper and answer questions.

We learned about how Mr. Mike can edit or move around the pictures and words on his computer to layout the newspaper.

4-H Reporter Riley Hopkins said “her favorite part was the 'pressroom' where words and pictures get pressed into the newspaper.”

We also learned how that if you wanted to learn about something that happened long ago you can come her and research old newspapers in the morgue room.
4-Hers taking the tour included Kolton Scruggs, Kendyl Kline, Kassidy Scruggs, Michelle Gomez, Jasie LeBlanc and Riley Hopkins. They were led by Dr. Jheri-Lynn McSwain with the Shelby County AgriLife Extension office.

Serving as junior photographers for the tour were Michelle Gomez and Jasie LeBlanc.
