Recently, Medford High School Senior Carly Roy, was named to the All-State Journalism Staff. Carly serves as photo editor for the Mustang Yearbook Staff. She is one of only five students state-wide to be selected by the Massachusetts Scholastic Press Association for this prestigious honor. Applicants had to submit an online portfolio of their work, a journalism resume, and a two page reflection on their journalism career to date. This is the first year that the Massachusetts Scholastic Press Association, a state affiliate of the National Journalism Education Association, has named the All-State Staff, in an effort to recognize excellence and shine a light on the next generation of newsroom leaders.
Carly’s photos have appeared both on the cover and inside the Mustang yearbook for the past two years. Her work has also been featured in various local exhibitions, as well as, in the school’s literary magazine and the Medford Transcript. Carly is the founder and President of the Medford High School Photography Club.
The five winners along with Carly were: Olivia Gieger of Wellesley High School, Mona Baloch of Newton South High School, Kathrine Esten of Somerset Berkley Regional High School, and Zachary Miller of Wellesley High School.
