Tuba City High School Students Jonas Saganisto (left) and Keoni Quinonez (middle) are headed to the University of Arizona's School of Journalism with their Language Arts Teacher Karin Jones for the High School Journalism Diversity Workshop where they will learn the basic of journalism.

It's not very often that you get to meet a Pulitzer Prize winner, let alone learn from one.

But three Tuba City High School students are about to get some hands on training from one of the best photojournalists in the world as they head to the University of Arizona's School of Journalism for a high school journalism diversity workshop featuring Pulitzer-winning photographer Jose Galvez.

"He's going to come and share his experience with these students and (share) why journalism was important for him," said Elena Stauffer, director of the high school journalism diversity workshop. "We're really excited for him to come."

The students will attend the workshop from June 8-14 and will make the University of Arizona their home for a week. Tuba City High School will be the only school representing the Navajo Nation.
