Eric Adler is a multi-award-winning features and news reporter at The Kansas City Star with more than 35 years of experience. His proven talent is extracting the most extraordinary tales from what seem, on the surface, like the most ordinary circumstances or people.

These sessions will present students with new ideas that they are unlikely to have encountered in the high school classroom. These are not software sessions. Instead, the sessions will present new ways of being a journalist or communicator in 2021 and provide lots of take-away examples that can motivate students when they return to school in the fall.
Inspiration sessions last 45 minutes each via Zoom.
