Several politicians, Cabinet ministers, journalists, JMI board members, and Sharif’s family members were present.

Princess Rym said in a speech that Sharif left a permanent mark in Jordan’s media sector by contributing to the teaching of generations of journalists in colleges and by chairing Ad-Dustour daily.

The princess said that she had personally known Sharif, since the beginning of her career in Jordan. At the time, the princess worked for CNN, while Sharif — who hailed from a renowned family of prominent journalists — was a Minister of Information.

Sharif was one of the first people whom Princess Rym worked with, when the Jordan Media Institute was established.

She said he believed in the empowerment of the youth, and the importance of their integration into the political and economic process of nation-building.

The legacy that Sharif left behind was the reason JMI named the newsroom after him, as a tribute to a professional like him, who had truly lived the essence of journalism on the ground, through fieldwork and gave so much to the profession, she said.

She called on students to follow his footsteps and use his legacy as an inspiration.

The second newsroom at the institute features advanced hardware and software tools, and is used to train the institute’s students and journalists in the production of photographic materials from images, infographics, and videos used in editing and producing multimedia articles for various media platforms.
