About the Contributors
Bennett Whetstone, Broadcasting Lead Editor
Bennett Whetstone is an AHS senior and award-winning journalist. Whetstone has taken part in journalism for three years. As lead broadcast producer, he specializes in editing weekly videos and “maintaining order” or keeping “everyone on the same page.” Whetstone's favorite part of journalism is taping the comedic parts of the Eye of the Needle around the school or doing Halloween or Christmas specials. Whetstone enjoys the freedom and autonomy of a student driven class. “The group of people I work with, is an awesome group” Whetstone said, “and gives me something to look forward to each day.” He is also a part of the Quill and Scroll journalism honor society.  Other activities Whetstone is involved in are running track and cross-country, National Honor Society, and AHS Fuel.  Outside of school, Whetstone plays guitar and creates music. He has been playing guitar for seven years and is self taught. Whetstone is looking forward to finishing up his high school career on a “good note” and having fun.  Story by Sophie Johnson
Mason McFadden, Broadcasting Lead Editor
Mason McFadden, 17, has taken part in journalism for the past two years. Mcfadden’s favorite department of choice is broadcasting because “I love editing and I'm good at it so it's only natural.”  His favorite part of journalism is making funny videos. To him, it is just a “good time.” He most enjoyed making the Valentine show last year with the Journalism Production class. McFadden participates in many school activities such as Cross Country, Soccer, and AHS Fuel. He also has a variety of hobbies such as playing piano, hiking, hanging out with friends, cooking, and “lots of running.” After school, he works on yards for Templeton Lawn Care, whether it’s mowing in the summer or scooping snow in the winter. McFadden explained why he is a good fit for the broadcasting arm of journalism: “I'm not the best at writing stories so the Needle isn't for me, and I struggled making my yearbook page last year, so that's not for me either.” McFadden also said he loved the flexibility in journalism and how it lets you express your creativity.
