Yasmine Guedira, News Chief

My name is Yasmine Guedira and I have been serving as the News Editor of our news magazine. I love having a first hand view of all the events at Sycamore. From the corners of the music department to the accomplishments of the athletics I love finding these stories and showcasing the accomplishments of all our students.
We start off with blank pages and after a bright idea and some illustrations we have compiled an issue full of inspiring ideas.
Outside of journalism I am involved in other activities in the community. After winning the sophomore debate tournament my team decided to start up the debate team at Sycamore! We will be representing Sycamore for the first time in the Ohio Speech and Debate Association.
Also, I am a student representative for Sycamore Advisory Commission which is an organization comprised of the school board, the PTO, and community members that helps to communicate the goals of the district.
I have been involved in the French Club for all four years of high school and I will be helping out in French classes with the Alliance Francaise.
I am looking forward to one more year of fun and excitement with my class.
Go Aves!
