The media team at TCHS is small but powerful. The team creates products that literally go out to millions of people.

The media class creates the yearbook; the students assign pages and design the book the way they want. “I enjoy working on the yearbook more, because I am able to design pages the way I want. Being able to share this book with the whole school is awesome,” said Julian Coker.

When publishing a yearbook, the students must take all of the pictures and pick the pages they want to design. After that, it is their responsibility to create the perfect page that has been checked off by three editors.

While yearbook has its own place in the class, web is a huge part as well. When working on the web, students have the responsibility to meet the deadlines so that the community is up-to-date on the current events of the high school.

Web involves the newspaper as well as the website. Web stories include sports, meet seniors, specialty stories, and student life. It is the media team’s job to write the stories and collect the correct information. The website is also used to post district information such as calendars, menus, enrollment information, and employment opportunities.  In addition, the seniors are utilizing the Guidance page for information about scholarships. 

Kelby Aschenbrenner, who has worked with the website for three years, stated, “One of the coolest things about web is watching people using and discussing the site that I have been a part of creating.  It’s a huge responsibility keeping everything up-to-date and making sure we get everything pasted.  We actually get a lot of requests from people to post things, so the pages are constantly changing.”




Meet Senior Hunter Olson

With his senior year coming to a close, senior Hunter Olson plans to attend North West Tech for welding. To make his last year memorable, Olson plans to “have fun.”

His favorite class over the years has been Ag. Looking back, Olson admitted he wished he would have paid better attention in his math classes.

High school has impacted Olson’s life by allowing him to grow up. His advice for underclassmen would be “have fun and enjoy your time.”

When asked if he would have done anything differently throughout his high school career, Olson wished he would have had more fun. An event Olson will never forget was “the time I set something on fire in art class.”






Students have fun at annual barnwarmer

Adding a new dimension to apple bobbing, Nate Werth and Sage Dinkel dunk Blake Spencer to retrieve an apple at the annual Barnwarmer on March 10. FFA and FCCLA sponsored the Barnwarmer, which was held at the Commercial Building.  Upon arrival, students stuffed themselves on hamburgers, hot dogs, sides, and an assortment of desserts.  After the meal, students played a variety of games, including bobbing for apples, Uno, Speak Out, and scooters.
