On Wednesday, June 5, Medaille College hosted the ninth annual Speak Your Mind & Shape Your World Journal unveiling celebration. Speak Your Mind & Shape Your World is a literary and visual arts magazine for Buffalo high school students.
The program started in 2003 as a small writing group, where students produced a hand-bound literary journal of their work. The initial journal was so well-received that Speak Your Mind & Shape Your World professionally published a journal every year thereafter.
As a sponsor of this program, Medaille College was proud to officially unveil the latest edition which featured the visual art and literary works of high school students throughout Buffalo, and was created by a team of student editors.
The celebration featured a student art show, live poetry reading, musical performance and awards ceremony. Copies of the journal, spoken work CD and artist notecards were available for purchase.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
