As a reminder, I am a photojournalist for NKU’s student newspaper, The Northerner.
This week, I took the assignment of covering the event of the Northern Kentucky Forum, which hosted KY Governor Steve Beshear. It took place on Thursday, March 26 in NKU’s Student Union Ballroom. I had never been to a forum before, but this one was quite informational. No one gave a speech and I believe the moderator Al Smith wanted to keep it like a conversation between Governor Beshear and the panel and the audience. At no point did Governor Beshear give a speech, but he seems like a very honest person in everything he discusses. I would encourage all of my fellow citizens to get involved in community activities such as this one.
Here are the relevant articles that got published relating to this event:
