Hillary DeVoss is excited to be spending her fourth summer at WJMC. For the past year, she’s been building a journalism program from the ground up at University Prep Science & Math High School in Detroit. Before moving to Michigan, she spent 14 years as the newspaper, yearbook and online media adviser at Omaha North High Magnet School, where her students earned honors at the local, state and national levels. She’s achieved Master Journalism Educator status from the Journalism Education Association and currently serves on its Scholastic Press Rights Commission. In her spare time, she loves to blog about free-speech legislation and the general awesomeness of student journalists. When she’s not thinking about journalism, she’s likely hanging out with her husband and cat-children, kayaking down a really slow river, or following her favorite sports teams. She can’t wait to meet the new correspondents and see them take advantage of all that WJMC has to offer!
