Lindsey Brinkman: Managing Editor

Lindsey Brinkman, Managing Editor

Hello online reader! My name is Lindsey Brinkman and I am a senior, thus making this my fourth and final year on the Leaf staff. 

I currently hold the position of one of the two Managing Editors and I am also the Package Chief, which basically means I help design, edit, and fix pages for our news magazine. Over the course of my time in the journalism program, I have learned to use Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, but I have found every day I learn something new!

Even though I have spent most of my high school life doing something involved with journalism, I have made sure to get involved with other activities too. Currently, I am apart of the color guard, winter guard, and the fencing club. As well as those few commitments, I have played the cello for eight years now, and I am a part of the school Symphonic Orchestra. In orchestra, I hold the position as Vice President! This is my first year in this position, and I have enjoyed every aspect of it so far. As well as holding a position with the Orchestra Council, I am also part of the marching band Leadership Team.

 All in all, thank you for stopping by and supporting The Leaf! I hope you can find something that sparks your interest! And, I hope you have a happy and positive day!

WRITE. Jane Austen grew up in Steventon, Hampshire, England. Over the span of her life, she would publish four books, as well as two books following her death. Although she published her books anonymously, following her death, her brother revealed that she was the true author. She is now considered one of the greatest writers in English history.

DECISION. Students go online to make the choices for their next year classes. One part that students struggle with is if they should take advanced placement (AP) classes or not. AP classes are very beneficial but also have some negative aspects.

PATIENCE AND PRACTICE. The whole sophomore class takes the multi-hour pre-ACT (PACT) in order to prepare for the real test. Students took the standardized test on Wed., Jan. 17 so that in the following years they are ready for the ACT. Despite being a long and grueling test, it is very helpful for getting ready for the future.

Practice makes perfect
