Leland Mallett has been doing scholastic journalism since the seventh grade, even though what he really wanted was to build a waterbed.
He is now the yearbook adviser at Legacy High School in Mansfield, Texas. His scholastic journalism has won many awards since it was founded in 2007, and Leland was named a 2017 JEA Distinguished Adviser.
In this episode, Leland and host Jim Jordan discusses how he built his program from the ground up, the importance of going home at a decent time every night, and how he musters the energy for their annual lock-in tradition.
Leland is Walsworth's August Adviser of Note, and you can learn more about him at https://www.walsworthyearbooks.com/yearbook-advisers-of-note-meet-leland-mallett/.
