Education and Training Requirements

High School

Classes in English, journalism, and speech are most important for honing writing skills. Speech classes are helpful for interacting with others. Be sure to take physical education classes and participate in organized sports, whether as competitor, team manager, or assistant. Also join the school paper or yearbook staff as this gives opportunities to cover and write about school sports teams or other school activities.
