By Rosa Rosales

The staff of Poth’s online high school newspaper, The Spyglass, spends our days gathering information and getting to know every possible detail about current events and important topics. So this week we were more than excited to have our turn and share a little bit about ourselves.

This year’s journalism students consist of juniors Mackenzie Collins, Erin Chacon, Rebecca Schraub, and Alyson Garza, and seniors Kalynn Garza and Rosa Rosales. I asked each writer why they decided to be in journalism and what they like most about the class. I also asked what they plan on studying after high school.

Mackenzie Collins said she “didn’t choose to be in journalism” but said she’s “glad she is and enjoys interviewing people.” Her favorite stories to report on are anything concerning sports. Collins also participates in softball and track; she plans on attending Evangel University to study psychology.

Erin Chacon said she chose to be in journalism class because it “seemed like an easy class.” It’s Erin’s second year in journalism. She said she enjoys “getting to interact with people.” Chacon likes reporting on stories over “fun events.” She is also a member of FCCLA and participates in UIL (news and editorial writing). Erin plans on attending culinary school.

Rebecca Schraub loves to write, so journalism was definitely a class she wanted to take. Schraub said her favorite stories to write about are those focusing on a single individual. She is also in band and the Color Guard. Rebecca plans on becoming an RN.

Alyson Garza had an open class, so she decided to take journalism. She enjoys talking to people and writing. Alyson said her favorite stories to write about include “sports and spotlights.” She participates in band, Color Guard, FCCLA, Book Club, and UIL. Alyson wants to attend nursing school after graduation.

This year will be Kalynn’s third year on the newspaper staff. She enjoys getting to know people, and her favorite stories to report on are spotlights. Kalynn is also in band, UIL, and FCCLA. After high school she plans on studying culinary arts with a minor in journalism.

This is my first year on the newspaper staff. I chose this class because I love to interact with people and enjoy writing. My favorite stories to write about are those that focus on an individual because I can get a chance to learn a lot about someone whom I didn’t know much about before. I also participate in FCCLA and UIL (informative speaking and current events). After high school I plan on majoring in mass communications and minor in public relations.

The Spyglass is published each Friday on the Poth ISD website and is advised by journalism teacher Lisa Theuret.

Poth High School sophomore Rosa Rosales is the daughter of Jose and Vicortia Rosales. She is a member of the FCCLA and participates in UIL informative speaking and current events. A senior, she works at Taqueria Jalisco and plans to major in mass communications in college.
