Tillie Berge, deputy content editor

Hi! My name is Tillie Berge, and I am a junior at SHS. This is my third year in journalism and I am currently the deputy content editor and lead copy editor. As a content editor, I consult with writers on their writing processes and read through each article before it is published. As a copy editor, I look for more grammatical and structural things that could be fixed in each article.

I joined the class freshman year purely out of a love for writing and reading. As a plus, my writing has majorly improved over the past two years. A main reason for my return, however, was the uniqueness of the class. Just by walking in the classroom, you can see that it is not your typical individual desk, whiteboards filled with equations, run-of-the-mill classroom. I get the privilege of working with many different amazing upper and lowerclassmen, who all collaborate to write and produce The Leaf once a month.

Outside of school, I run cross country and play club soccer. I am also a member of the Fashion for the Cure committee at SHS. My absolute favorite thing to do, however, is hanging out with my friends and family.

All-in-all, this class is an eye-opening experience to what producing a newspaper is like and gives me the opportunity to reach many people with my ideas and opinions. I hope you like my writing, and I encourage you to join journalism as well!

Go Aves!

BOOKBANNING. We have all heard of the efforts to ban books sweeping the U.S. education system. Books such as “The Kite Runner”, “Maus”, and “To Kill a Mockingbird”—pillars of the U.S. education system, all of which depict grim and heartbreaking times in history, such as the Holocaust and the Jim Crow era—are being challenged in schools around the nation. And book banning, something that I thought only occurred in movies like “Footloose”, has only gotten closer and closer to Ohio.

DESTINATION: ISOLATION. The loneliness of March’s quarantine is almost too painful to remember. However, we have found a safe silver-lining around the cloud that is quarantine. What is it? As you may be wondering, the answer is learning in pods! This keeps you safe, because you are isolating yourself in a group of people, but also provides a solution to the boredom we have faced.
