The Messenger’s Editor in Chief Mary Maselli, a junior at Smithtown Christian School, has recently been recognized by Congressman Lee Zeldin.
She was given this award to recognize her success in being selected as a New York representative at the The Washington Journalism and Media Conference at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. Mary particularly takes an interest in the subjects of English and Journalism.
George Mason University is the largest public university in Virginia, as well as one of the most culturally diverse universities in the whole nation. The conference will provide an “integrated and forward-thinking approach to journalism and media, while acquiring valuable “in-the-trenches” knowledge.”
The conference will take place from July 12-17.
