Joe dennis who is the camp director talks about his path from being a rockstar to a journalist.

“When I first moved here in Athens, Georgia I was a disk jockey on the radio,” states Joe. “So I would dress the part.”

At the beginning of Dennis’ career he majored in the music industry, but he got an opportunity and ended up majoring in journalism. Dennis’ interest sparked when he met a girl and got into journalism, but then found out how much he really enjoyed it.

Joe dennis has taught me and my class a lot about journalism and the journey and how to be the best journalist we can be . When camp ends i would take his notes and advise along with me in my journey .
