From Far and Wide?
This is my first year attending the North Carolina Scholastic Media Institute, and unfortunately it will be my last, as I am a rising senior. However I have loved every bit of it! I am the only participate from my school, making me a member of the Academy program. I attend Gray Stone Day School in Misenheimer, NC. Coming from a very small, rural area (literally a village), not many people know where I am from. Therefore, I was inspired to find out other students’ journeys and backgrounds. Where are they from? How far did they have to travel? Four hours or forty-minutes? Needless to say, the consensus was that the majority of NCSMI attendees were from the Charlotte area. (see map below)
