Diversity is an important aspect to any industry, but especially the media. That was the message during the 68th annual Southern Regional Press Institute took place Feb. 28 and March 1 at Savannah State University.

The conference, which is for high school and college students, features multiple workshops on all aspects of the media from film to newspapers. Professionals including 94.1 FM’s Lady Mahagony and the Savannah Morning News cartoonist Mark Streeter were among dozens of people who participated in the panels and workshops over the two days.

The institute is scheduled every February at Savannah State by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications.
