Marcus Matthews Attends Washington D.C. Seminar

Marcus Matthews, Teen Appeal coordinator and author, was selected to participate in New America Media’s seminar, “Engage Parents and Ethnic Communities in Education Reform” in Washington D.C. last month.

Matthews, who is also a doctoral candidate in higher and adult education said, “I’m honored that I was selected to be part of a program of this magnitude. New America Media has thoroughly impressed me with its dedication to informing the public about education reform. This is an awesome opportunity for me to learn and help at the same time.” 

The two-day, working seminar featured lectures, panel discussions and editorial workshops by leading education experts, advocates and writers. The select group featured 20-24 ethnic media reporters and editors from four southern cities. 

Founded in 1996, New America Media is the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations.
