Community Journalism

Last night at my daughter’s high school, the county had an informational meeting about the planning for schools in our county. I took my Fuji X-E2 camera with me just in case I wanted to use it.

There were less than ten people in attendance. So you would think there is no real reason to have a meeting, but this is how many meetings happen every day in our communities that have a significant long-term impact on our communities.

Those who speak up are the ones they hear from, and they must assume this is the will of the community because they asked them for their feedback, which is what they get.

Those in attendance at the Fulton County Schools Educational Space Standards Community Meeting could hear how the county has hired outside experts in educational space. The experts will help the county set those academic standards that the designers and architects will use to assist in implementing changes to improve our schools.

They will now have the WHY part of the process answered if anyone asks why they were making these changes. Also, when the changes recommended come up against budget restraints, everyone will know what they are falling short of doing.

So imagine you go to one of these meetings in your community. Do you think a photo with some explanation would be a great way to communicate with your friends through social media?

Next community event, you go to be sure and take some good photos and add some text as a caption. Taking pictures and writing a summary can help us build stronger communities.
