Nick Bennett, Broadcasting
Nick Bennett, age 17, joined Journalism at the beginning of this year. He had been wanting to join for a little while but his schedule had just been so full. “It was something I’d wished I’d always done, then senior year came around,” Bennett said. Bennett has been “heavily involved” in a broadcasting video his sophomore year. It was a video regarding “How to get a Winter Formal date.” Bennett’s favorite piece he has done was “Eye of the Needle 9/18/23.” He had some individuals come in and blindly try three Coca Cola beverages but all in different containers: one in a glass bottle, one in a plastic bottle, and one in a can. Bennett has no awards for journalism so far, but he has been a national qualifier in speech and debate, a two year football letter winner, and also a three year tennis letter winner. Bennet is also involved in AHS Fuel, the school’s spirit club. Story by Mabry Ohm

    I really liked the tasting of the Coca-Cola pop, because people have different tastes. People think different when their taste buds taste something that might not taste the same to another person.
