'Editors for a Day' make a great impression on our staff

We welcomed two talented young 5th graders from the Eastmont School District at our offices on Mission Street on Thursday. Makenna Schwab, from Kenroy Elementary and Grace Mangum of Grant Elementary were "Editors for a Day," thanks to an auction.  

As I introduced them around to our staff, there was widespread sentiment that the leadership of The World had improved measurably.  They are both voracious readers and are fans of the Harry Potter series of books. Schwab enjoys science and is particularly proud that she sold 530 boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts to raise $7,535.37 (yes, she knew the amount to the penny) for Make A Difference Day. She turned down my offer of dropping out of school and coming to work in sales. 

Besides reading, Mangum enjoys math and is quite fond of dancing. She was ecstatic about the improvements that were made to Grant School. which reopened this fall.  They had a chance to sit down and talk with one of our extraordinary reporters, Mike Irwin, who brings a conversational tone that engages readers with the stories he writes. They had a chance to visit our production facility and see the presses roll. 

It was a joy to have them visit us at The World.
