Allison Berryhill, Adviser

Alison Berryhill is an English teacher and journalism instructor at AHS. She became a teacher because when she was a kid, she didn’t think school was interesting enough. Berryhill decided to make school better for future generations.

Berryhill wrote freelance articles while raising her children. She had to write about controversial topics, while not giving her opinion on the topic. Berryhill uses this knowledge to teach journalism students how to write a non-opinionated piece. AHSneedle and the journalism department is student-driven. Berryhill said, “My job is to keep things legal and keep standards high, but sometimes I think my job is to just stay out of the way.” 

One of her favorite memories of the journalism team was winning the News Team of the Year award while at a conference in Iowa City, in 2018. She said it was exciting to be able to accept the award in person.

Something you may not know about Berryhill is that she learned how to ride a unicycle. She also plays accordion and at one point took a shot at learning how to slackline. These traits make up Berryhill’s “circus-clown persona” that is often seen, or heard, around AHS
