The Eaton Red Ink staff has worked very hard this year to create a newspaper with a larger staff. Although we all work together, we all have our differences in what we write and who we are outside of newspaper. Here is each of the staff member’s accounts on who they are and why they like writing what they write.

Sydney Booth: Editor in Chief

Newspaper has been like a job in addition to my schoolwork this past year, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love working on the print issues and our website, and I am very proud of how the program has grown throughout my short time here. I am so proud of each and every print issue we have put out this year. In my spare time, I can be found outside during the summer, playing basketball or tennis, and working my part-time job.

I enjoy following current affairs and love talking and talking, as you can see through my writing; I could go on forever. I write what I write in order to inform others and express the way I feel about things and to create a balance between opinions. There is such a large divide right now in America between parties, but through my writing I try to close the divide.

Everet Slaughenhaupt: Media Editor

I’m Everet Slaughenhaupt; I love cats and Jesus. Essentially I like writing what I write because I don’t have to interview people and such I guess. So, yeah…. that’s all you need to know I suppose.

Morgan Koeltzow: News Editor

I am Morgan Koeltzow, a socially awkward 16 year old. My favorite thing to do in my free time is write, so being in the newspaper wasn’t that hard to adjust to.

I also want to major in International Relations, with a minor in Economics, so paying attention to the world will be essential to my future.

I’m AJ Bath. I enjoying skating, badminton, and cooking. I am usually found chilling at the park or at the library reading or with friends. I prefer to write opinion or feature because I can focus on how to write what I want to say rather than what to write in the first place.

Celsi Jurgensmeier: Staff Reporter

For my last semester of high school I decided I would give journalistic writing a shot. I knew that I would learn how to be a great writer and get to report important events that happen within the high school as well as around the community. I was unaware that I would get the opportunity to meet genuine and talented students that I did not know well before. Everyone is very welcoming, helpful and willing to be a hype man when needed. I will forever be thankful for the relationships I had the opportunity to build and the memories made in Journalism for my last semester at Eaton High School.

Brenda Macias: Staff Reporter

I am Brenda Macias and I was staff reporter this year. I joined journalism to improve my writing and to write more often and make it my habit. Although I might not write well it’s my passion to create stories and write about my surroundings. I think that stories are pieces of history that can help us look at the past and see what we improved on. I write because it distracts me and let’s me express myself, especially when I write opinion for newspaper.
