To them, inspiration strikes in the dead of night. To them, words come naturally. To them, the stresses of deadlines and satisfaction of going to print are real. They are the 2012-2013 Scarlet Scroll Journalism Staff. Advised by Mrs. Tanya Katnic, this is one student group on campus that is getting real-world journalistic experience. Responsible for interviewing, writing the copy, and laying out the newspaper via Adobe inDesign, the 12 ladies of the Journalism staff produce Mater Dei’s only monthly student-run publication. Meet the journalists behind the bylines in the 2012-2013 The Scarlet Scroll.
