Elizabeth Anderson, AHS Needle Editor, Podcasting

Writing stories, editing, and recording a podcast is what you can find junior Elizabeth Anderson doing in room 408.

Anderson joined journalism because she has an interest in taking photos for the yearbook, looking into the backside of AHS Needle, and Eye of the Needle. As a junior, she has written many stories for, podcasted, helped with the 2021 yearbook, and much more.

"My biggest accomplishment in Journalism was when I won the "Best of SNO," award my sophomore year on a story I wrote about dress code opinions. I also won an award on a page I created at the IHSPA Conference in Iowa City earlier this month," Anderson said.

Anderson has been employed at the YMCA as a lifeguard since 2019 and at Rolling Hills as a teller since 2022. "I really like my jobs, they keep me busy and I always learn new things."

Anderson had been involved in the band, Premiere show choir, Chamber Choir, swim team, Villa Dance Company, Diversity show choir, concert choir, and journalism. In Anderson's free time she drives around with friends, hangs with family, watches Netflix, sleeps, or spends time with her cat, Buddy.

She is the daughter of Lori and Jason Anderson. "I look up to my parents, aunt, and grandma the most because they always taught me to do the right thing always and I can always have a fun time when I'm around them."

Anderson plans on attending college and working in the medical field in Iowa.
