Southland junior Juli-Anne Atwood (5th/left) and her classmates met Sister Jean Schmidt at the 2018 Digital Storytelling Workshop hosted at Loyola University's downtown campus in early June. Atwood was chosen as part of a select group of Chicagoland teens for this intense week of media & journalism training.

The 2017 Chicago Auto Show
Not only did our Junior Broadcast Journalists get their first real taste of OTJT during Southland’s first-ever trip to the show Feb. 19, but they also got a bonus - invaluable industry and career tips from ABC7 Anchor/Reporter Rob Elgas. Our five news teams used their video to produce stories about cars for college graduates, family-friendly vehicles, cars of the future and sports cars.
