The Leaf

Jack Wolfe
“Doc, are you telling me that you built a time machine, out of a Delorean?”- Back to the Future

Hello, my name is Jack Wolfe and I am a Senior at SHS. This is my fourth year writing for the Leaf and I could not be happier with my decision to join the class once again. These past four years in the journalism program have surely been one of the best classes I've taken. Not only have I gotten acquainted with being able to express oneself through writing, but as the years have gone on I've also learned my capability to take on leadership roles. During my first two years of the program, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted, I knew I liked writing but I never thought I was good enough. I thought that all I could do was write about movies and that I should stray away from my inherent interest and write about “real news”. Now as I have grown as a person and a writer, I’ve realized how much I am capable of. I know now that I can take on leadership roles, and I can bring value through my writing.

I am currently the Business Manager of the Leaf, meaning that I oversee the general costs and sales the leaf makes throughout the year. Every day that I go into the Journalism classroom I want to ensure that the writers of the Leaf and our readers, get the best experience with this newspaper as they possibly can. I hope to make sure the Leaf gives the student body their school news smoothly and efficiently.

One of the subjects that I frequently write about, as I’ve said before, is film and cinema. In fact, last year I received a Best of S.N.O award for my review of The Peanut Butter Falcon. Part of why I love film (or more accurately film analysis) is because there are so many minute details that can add to the overall story. While it may seem silly to go so in-depth on the subject, our modern entertainment reflects the status of today's culture. To see the progression through film is to me, a progression of our culture. Besides picking apart at movies, I’m also a student-athlete. I have been part of the  Track and Field team for the past 3.5 years. Mainly, I've competed in the high jump and sprinting events. 

With four years into this program, I strive to make use of the knowledge I've gained through this class. Writing will continue to be a passion of mine and I hope that when I look back on this portfolio with my Delorean style time machine I’ll have grown into the person I aspire to be.
