LOHS freshman Charlotte Johnston works on writing news briefs during her visit to The Lake Orion Review office on Thursday.

Charlotte Johnston, a freshman at Lake Orion High School, visited The Lake Orion Review on June 6 as part of a job shadow project for her Career Foundations class.

Charlotte learned about the journalism process, covering events, interviewing sources, page layout and the difference between writing for newspapers and writing for English assignments in school.

“I’m really glad I came to The Lake Orion Review because I had a lot of fun. And learned some new things, as well. I really think journalists should be given more credit,” Charlotte said.

Charlotte’s favorite subjects are English, drama, history and creative writing.
