Ben Ruskin, Executive Editor-in-Chief

Hi! My name is Ben Ruskin and I’m a senior here at Sycamore High School. This is my fourth year on the staff. As a part of The Leaf, our national award-winning, student-run publication, I hold the position of Co-Executive Editor-in-Chief. My position includes overseeing the production of all four of our platforms: print newsmagazine, online magazine, website, and broadcast department. I enjoy writing under multiple genres and thus have written a multitude of articles including feature, opinion, news, and arts & entertainment. I also take great pride in designing pages (Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator) and editing/shooting videos (Windows Movie Maker and iMovie). I look forward to another great year with the hard-working staff of The Leaf. More about myself: I find volunteering to be extremely rewarding: I work as a volunteer teacher’s assistant at my temple during religious school every Sunday. I am also involved in BBYO, a Jewish youth group outside of school, I have worked as a board member of my chapter for several terms. I am also involved in OGB-GO, a club I founded here at Sycamore High School. The club helps families in Sycamore are who need some sort of assistance financially. I am also involved in National Honors Society and Unified For Uganda as an avid member and volunteer. In addition to volunteering and extra-curricular, I really enjoy movies and television. My favorite TV shows are “Scrubs” and “The Walking Dead.” My favorite movies are “Good Will Hunting” and “Interstellar” I hope to eventually work in the realm of entertainment. A quote to live by: “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud” - Maya Angelou.
