NCSMA is the sole reason I feel confident teaching student media courses to teenagers everyday. Without the association and all it has equipped me through the summer programs, the fall workshops, and the mentor program,  our student media department and the education it provides to our students would look much different and would not be as valuable an experience. I am incredibly indebted to the association for its invaluable resources and generous spirit towards journalism educators.
