Haley Fritz, a senior project student at Maynard High School, has spent months exploring the relationship between mainstream media and American politics and will host a discussion titled “The Changing State of Media in American Politics,” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. April 28 in the Maynard High School auditorium, 1 Tiger Drive.

Her project began with a comprehensive research paper on TV’s role in politics, encompassed an eight-week internship in the office of Gov. Charlie Baker, and will now conclude with a cumulative final project: a moderated discussion with a diverse panel of professionals on the transformative power of modern media on political strategy.

Panelists include Massachusetts state Sen. Jamie Eldridge, D-Acton; Joan Vennochi, a Pulitzer Prize-sharing journalist for the Boston Globe; professor Dan Kennedy of Northeastern University; Cheryl Crawford, the executive director of MassVOTE; and Will Rasky, a public affairs associate at Rasky-Baerlein Strategic Communications. Each will use their experiences in the workplace to answer questions on the evolving relationship between modern media and American political strategy.

Seats at the event are limited, and tickets will be distributed to students and community members on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets are free and will also be available at the door.
