Pence to Appear at Pink-Out

Former Vice President will attend the Trojan-Bluejays matchup next Friday.

Vice President Pence will offer the opening coin toss on Oct. 6.

Former Vice President Mike Pence will attend the Oct. 6 Pink-Out football game at the Atlantic Trojan Bowl. His events coordinator recently contacted ACSD Activities Director Andrew Mitchell about having Pence do the coin toss at the game.

Superintendent Dr. Beth Johnsen said this is a special moment for Atlantic to host a former vice president. She said that additional police and county officers will be added to the complex to ensure extra security and Pence will also have a personal security team.

One of Pence’s people will come and walk through the whole event the day before for an idea of what might happen.

Johnson wants people to remember that it is the Pink-Out game and the main idea is to raise breast cancer awareness and support, but that this is also a very special moment to remember for our community.

Pence is a Republican candidate for the 2024 Presidential Election. According to PBS News Hour, he is the only vice president in modern history to challenge his former running mate.

Ella Meyer is an AHS junior and in her second year of journalism. Meyer is the lead podcast editor for AHS journalism. Her favorite part is First Fridays.Meyer said, “It is when all of the leads get together and we talk about stuff and we just usually end up having some sort of fun and like laughing and just having a pretty good time.” Meyer is specialized in the podcast department of journalism. Her favorite memory in Journalism is over the summer of 2023 a group went to Media Now, which is a journalism camp. “I had so much fun, you do crazy games and I got really close with some of my fellow journalism people because we had to spend a week together in a dorm room in all these dorms and I'd say that’s probably my favorite. It got crazy and we had so much fun.” Meyer likes how journalism is different by how everyone works together, shares ideas as well as supporting each other on the ideas, and giving each other the best feedback possible so you can succeed. Currently Meyer is not involved in anything but journalism but Meyer picked up scrapbooking and is looking forward to it. She also enjoys reading in her free time.  Meyer is most proud of her Read Across America Yearbook page that she made last year. She got a lot of compliments on and Ms. Berryhill entered it into a contest and they are still waiting for the results. Meyer hopes to go into an education major to teach journalism down the road.  Story by Jersey Green

“Great people who happen to be great speakers.” This is a quote that junior Nissa Molgaard, 16,  lives by as it reflects her passion for speech and debate. She joined journalism, because it gave her the freedom to do things that she enjoyed, photography, and talking with friends. Molgaard has published two stories, the 100 Word Rant and Speech & Debate. Along with many photo entries. Molgaard has been involved in Debate since her freshman year and went to Nationals last year in extemp commentary and spontaneous speaking, and has been doing Debate since Freshman year. “I’ve done Extemp, Congress, Spontaneous Speaking, Expository Speaking, and Public Forum,” Molgaard said. She is planning on doing Info, Congress, and Extemporaneous Speaking. She is the Extemp Captian this year. She also loves “public speaking, gaining credibility, and tips on how to be a better speaker.”  Her accomplishments include advancing to “A” House of Congressional Debate, her sophomore year, which was her first year of Congressional Debate. “This year, I hope to win some awards, and my goal is to try to win in the categories I’m in; Congress, Extemp, and Info.”  In Molgaard’s free time, you can find her making origami, climbing trees, or hanging out with friends. After high school, Molgaard plans on going to college to study law.  Story by Jody Williams
