Dayton Daily News will host Sunshine Week events for area schools

Sunshine Week events focus on raising awareness of public records and open assembly laws, how citizens can use them to hold government accountable, and their importance.

Beavercreek City Schools Superintendent Paul Otten said teaching kids about government transparency and giving them access to professionals with real-world experience is good for students.

“It’s a great opportunity for our kids,” he says. “Whenever our kids can have real-life experiences talking to people on the ground, it gives them richer perspectives to understand what’s going on.”

Classrooms will also receive giveaway bags containing Dayton Daily News branded items such as tote bags, water bottles and pens.

The event was hosted by Tia Clyburn and Sarah Cavender, two recent Wright State University graduates who pursued careers in journalism after exposure to a similar program at school. Both were interns and then reporters and are currently working on digital products for the Dayton Daily News.

“It’s really going to be a time to let (students) know what careers are in mass communications, in journalism, and what the opportunities are for those jobs here at the Dayton Daily News,” Clyburn said.
