Caroline Bruns, Webmaster

Hi, I'm Caroline Bruns and I'm a senior at Sycamore high school! I've been on the SHSLeaf Staff since sophomore year. After learning the tricks of the trade from some experienced mentors, I began to find my own way in this journalism class. Sophomore year I focused heavily on the website, learning how to embed external links, create and modify a website, and publish student works on our nationally recognized site. Junior year I held the position of Web Editor-in-chief. This year I am Webmaster. The job title is very cool, but it basically means that I oversee all publications and modifications on the website, as well as publishing works and communicating with WordPress representatives. If you scroll through my articles, you will see that I am an avid writer of sports (especially cross country); this is because I am the captain of the women's cross country team. Although I am usually an online writer, I have been published multiple times in our student newspaper, The Leaf, and our online news magazine, The Leaflet. I pride myself in my ability to use Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, Premiere, and Photoshop to set up pages, edit photos, and create interesting media for our readers. In the future, I hope to study business and marketing. Eventually, I hope to become an international business representative or work for P&G. A few more things about myself... I am a member of NHS, an avid skier, a dog enthusiast, and a lover of Ernest Hemmingway. I am also a student council rep. for the senior class, and head of the StuCo social committee. Outside of school, I play rec soccer, hammock often with friends, and run. My favorite quote is, "The only time you can't find a four leaf clover is when you stop looking for one" - Joe Rantz.

POUR. Student Council students have been filling bottles for days, getting their hair, clothing and hands completely covered in the colorful dust. They started with red and yellow, then moved to blue and green for filling. “It was really fun to fill up the bottles. The one problem was that it was windy in the courtyard, so a lot of the dust blew into my hair and onto my clothes. Luckily, it’s all washable so I don’t really need to worry about it,” said Taylor Miller, 10.

Finding a present atop your desk can be extremely exciting. Many times, students will deliver them via friends or acquaintances so that the identity of the giver remains secret. Usually these gifts include food or games that can be utilized by the student.
