This story was very interesting. I knew NOTHING about swim coming into this meeting. The players helped me a great amount and now i understand the sport more than i previously did.

The reddies one in an intense five set match. after the game the coach was very open to talking about his teams success and so were the players.

December 12, 2018

This story was a sad one for me. I knew the season would come to an end eventually, but I personally wanted to cover a team that won a championship. The Volleyball team made it to the GAC championship but lost to Harding University in the final game. This team has taught me a lot about volleyball. Coming into the season I didnt...

The Battle of the Ravine or BOTR was an event that I have experienced before and even been apart of for the school across the street. The Reddies lost but i did find a new respect for the work that people put into making the event special. During the Week Ouachita and Henderson have joint events. A few years ago the schools...

The fashion show was one of the most entertaining events I’ve been to as a reporter. Everyone was genuinely excited to raise awareness for G.L.O.W. or Girls Living on Wings. The DJ for the event, Archie Allister and the host Diominique McKissick were very passionate about the event. They were also willing to be interviewed....

December 10, 2018

It was difficult to find people to interview at the festival. Most of the attendees were in classes, or having their plays reviewed. I was able to talk to a few people, but I wasn’t able to write the in-depth article I wanted to. However, attending the festival was a good experience. I’ve never been to one, and it was interesting...

Board of Trustees Meeting

December 10, 2018

I was very nervous about writing this article, because I had to interview several members of the board of trustees. Writing this article taught me the importance of interviewing multiple people. You end up with a lot of good quotes to choose from versus subpar quotes that you only end up using because you have to.

I enjoyed attending the homecoming presentation, because I was able to see all the participants. However, it was stressful trying to get quotes. Candidates and their family members where all in the same place. Everyone was trying to take pictures or trying to exit the crowded hallway.

Margin of Excellence

December 10, 2018

Interviewing my sources helped me realize how important it is to have good interview questions. Thankfully my questions allowed my sources to talk about things at length. This got me no one word responses and a lot of information to work with. I had trouble condensing all of the facts and interesting information. It was very...

December 10, 2018

I really enjoyed asking athletes what No Mere Beast meant to them. It was kind of difficult to find someone from every sport but I managed to get almost all of them. I was even able to interview someone from the cross-country team. They all had various answers which led to an interesting article

E-Sports

KaBryn Grayson, Student Reporter

December 10, 2018

I enjoyed writing this article, because of all the good information I got doing the interview. John Price, the director of E-sports was very passionate about what the hobby means for Henderson. In addition to telling me the ins and outs of E-sports he also told me how they impacted his life. It was a different angle than what...

KaBryn Grayson, Student Reporter

December 10, 2018

This was a relatively easy article to write. A lot of information was online regarding voting in Clark County. Not only did these sources make it easier to write the article, it also gave me great resources to give my peers. When you include sources in your article, you want your readers to be able to understand the information....
