SPJ National Staff Looking Good on Eve of Excellence in Journalism Opening Day

NEW ORLEANS– If you’ve ever been to a convention for the Society of Professional Journalists, you know there are always a great of volunteers who are dressed alike posted at all of the sessions to tell you where to go.

They’re always helpful in answering questions.

They are constantly breaking down and setting up areas during the convention.

Tonight the staff was all decked out and looking great for the Sigma Delta Chi Awards Banquet.
