Senior Sets New Record in the Discus
In track & field this week, Nate Schuckman ’23 broke the school record in the Discus with a throw of 50.79m (166′ 8″) which beats the previous record which was a throw of 161′ 1.5″ (49.11m) thrown by Curtis Yancy ’09 in 2008. Way to go, Nate!
Sophomore Earns Honorable Mention in Photojournalism Competition
Mae Scott ’25 earned an Honorable Mention in the 2023 St. Louis Public Radio Teen Photojournalist competition for her landscape picture. “For this competition, I actually didn’t think I would do well at all. It was my first time submitting this particular image, and for past competitions, I always submitted a different one that the judges always seemed to like,” said Scott. “This image had always been a favorite of mine, though, so I went ahead and gave it a shot. When I found out I received an honorable mention, I was honestly in shock. Not only had I submitted it entirely by myself without my teacher’s help, but it was out of my comfort zone as far as the work I’ve done in the past and photos I had submitted in the past.
“I want to give a huge thank you shoutout to Ms. Williams and Ms. Douglas. Ms. Williams, you have helped me grow so much as a photographer and pushed me out of my comfort zone. I’ve been able to navigate different tools and find the style that works best for me in both Photoshop and when using the camera. I can easily say that I wouldn’t have made this honorable mention if it wasn’t for your demos in class and your patience to help me when I might not understand whatever new tool we might be using.
