Meet Haley, my high school journalism job shadow from Spring Grove Area High School

I had a newsroom buddy today. Meet Haley Staub, 16, of Spring Grove aka @tarhelgrl50 on Twitter.

Well, today was tons of fun. (So was Friday, and the pie party, but I’ll get to that in another post.)

A Spring Grove Area High School junior from our Teen Takeover staff hung out with me all day for part of her graduation project.

She decided to shadow me after attending my #boyer101 session earlier this year. My presentation, apparently, hadn’t scared her off.

Here’s how the day went down:

First, we broke a story about the West Manchester Mall banning unescorted teens. Thankfully, I’m basically an expert on the havoc juveniles can wreak on local retail complexes.

Then, we headed to a local farm for another story I’m working on about alternative animal feeds that can save farmers money as commodity prices rise.

Haley being #digitalfirst on the farm.

She met with our day cops reporter and I taught her about some gadgets and apps I use, like Storify, Photosynth, ScribbleLive, GatheringPoint and the like.

Oh, and we also talked about how awesome Penn State is. And petted cows.

It was a pretty crazy Monday. The mall story was kind of unexpected.

But I hope she had fun, learned something and comes back soon!
