Mission: Media at Flagler College

On Feb. 11, journalism students at Flagler College took St. Augustine middle schoolers on a reporting trip. They went to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, a favorite Florida tourist attraction.
The students were taking part in a project known as Mission: Media, aimed at showing young people what it’s like to be a reporter for a day. The middle schoolers also got the opportunity to meet students who attend Flagler College and learn about careers and academic life.
Helena Särkiö, a professor at Flagler College, created Mission: Media. It is a project of the student chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, or SPJ.
Särkiö said the participating students are members of the St. Augustine Boys & Girls Club.
