BENEFITING: MICHIGAN INTERSCHOLASTIC PRESS ASSOCIATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 17, 2015
Our goal is to fundraise for our Jeff Nardone scholarship, which was established in memory of Jeff Nardone. The scholarship is for students to attend Michigan Interscholastic Press Association's summer workshop at Michigan State University. Nardone was a long-time journalism adviser, MIPA leader and instructor at the MIPA summer workshop. Nardone taught English and journalism at Grosse Pointe South High School, where he advised the award-winning weekly newspaper, The Tower. Nardone’s students won more than 800 individual awards from state and national organizations. The Tower was inducted into MIPA’s Hall of Fame in 2002, as a charter member. To be inducted into the MIPA Hall of Fame, a student media outlet must accumulate nine Spartans in a 10-year span.
