As part of a summer communication studies special topics course, five Gardner-Webb photojournalism students covered last month’s Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Ariz., as interns for Baptist Press. The group’s 21 online multimedia pieces garnered more than 13,000 hits, the highest productivity of any Gardner-Webb student team during the six-year partnership with Baptist Press. “Six years ago, Baptist Press asked us to bring students to provide photo coverage for the Annual Meeting, and particularly of Crossover, SBC’s evangelistic outreach effort,” said Dr. Bob Carey, chair of the Communication Studies department at Gardner-Webb.
