FROM THE EDITORS- Fall Semester in Review
Editorial Review: Addison Barker
The past four years in Journalism have helped shape me into the individual I am today. Walking into this school my freshman year, I was afraid to express my opinions about certain things and have conversations about the important events taking place around me. The assignments we were given for The Blue Print required us to use outside sources on events taking place around me and correctly inform myself on what is taking place.
This has made me more aware of what takes place in this school and community and has given me the ability to form and voice my opinion and point of view. This program has also given me so many new friends. Overall, I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to participate ad have been part of the Journalism staff my entire high school career.

As one of the editors for this year’s Blue Print, I have had the privilege of working with a great staff who helped me start off my senior year. Even though I came in with no prior high school journalism experience, everyone was willing to work with me, teach me, and help revitalize The Blue Print.
Some of my responsibilities, along with Madeline and Addison, are to help others on the Journalism staff develop their writing skills and, most importantly, understand the power of journalism and why writing about topics relevant to school are so vital. I am so thankful to have begun my senior year as part of the ECCHS Journalism staff, and I cannot wait to continue to work with the rest of the staff next semester.
Editorial Review: Madeline Daughtry:
I have been on the Blue Print newspaper staff since I was in 9th grade. The experience of being on the newspaper staff has helped me in many ways during high school. Firstly, it has helped me increase my writing skills. I have become more comfortable with talking to people I do not know from interviewing for different articles. I have also gained important leadership skills from being editor this semester. To be an editor, you must work with your peers by helping and correcting their articles. This can help me in many ways throughout my life and career. I am so thankful I got to have the experience of being on the Blue Print newspaper staff for four years of high school!
