Hadley MugFriends,
I want to share some possibilities with you as you plan professional development activities for the summer.

There are several opportunities available to advisers from IHPSA and other organizations.


Check for information about the IHSPA Adviser Internship on the IHSPA website at:
Click “Events” on the top bar and then scroll down to “Adviser Internship.” The website describes this valuable program in more detail and includes application materials, but I also have attached an Internship Application Form that describes the internship and includes an application.

Feel welcome to contact me if you have questions. 

Woman’s Press Club Indiana is offering a scholarship for teachers as well, and that information is also attached as a PDF of this email and will be posted on the IHSPA website as well.
Indiana University School of Journalism offers grants for teacher/adviser summer workshops. You can find more information on THIS LINK:


Denise Roberts, Greenwood Community High School; Greg Mosley, Brown County High School; and Chris Kupersmith, Bedford North Lawrence HighSchool are 2013 recipients of Lilly Teacher Creativity Grants.

Congratulations to them for earning this exciting opportunity to expand interests.

I hope everyone will keep us informed of your challenges and successes.

It’s hard to believe that the First Amendment Symposium was launched six years ago. It is still exciting to see a group of students visit the Statehouse for the first time and see the beautiful “stately place” where they are about to speak or receive awards.

This year, IHSPA  members will celebrate the First Amendment with a variety of speakers and the presentation of 26 student awards or scholarships including the 2013 Student Journalist of the Year.

To learn more about keynote speaker Emily Jacobi or Glenda Ritz, Superintendent of Public Instruction, check the IHSPA website here.

Those who travel to the symposium by mini van or bus are welcome to free parking at the Indiana Historical Society at 450 West Ohio Street, easy walking distance to the Statehouse. For additional directions check this website for more information.

Those who use the Historical Society lot should have the parking ticket validated inside the Historical Society when you arrive.

Entrance to the symposium is the east side of the Statehouse on Capitol Ave. The north atrium is on the main level.

Feel welcome to contact Diana Hadley at for additional questions or her cell at: 317.341.4360.
