Lights, camera, flash goes junior Haley Rasmussen’s camera as she takes pictures for AHS Journalism. This is her favorite task in journalism. Her favorite photos she has taken for the Needle were of a boys basketball game.

Rasmussen is involved in many activities including volleyball, basketball, and track. Though Rasmussen is good at all the sports she is in, she has had many accomplishments in track. Rasmussen said, “I have made it to State track both my freshman and sophomore years, and even medaled my sophomore year.” When you don’t see her out on the court or sprinting it out on the track, you can find her hanging out with friends, or getting some rays at the lake. Her favorite thing to do at the lake is tubing. “It’s just a really enjoyable environment with all my friends and family,” she said. 

The most important people in Rasmussen’s life are her parents because they support her. Rasmussen hopes in the future she can go to college and possibly get a job in education.
