River Recap #9

Watch for upcoming articles and events!

Welcome, everybody, to the James River Knightly News! Writing here is the Video and Production Editor, Ian DeHaven. Let’s get it started.

The Knightly News will provide an outlet for student voices in an otherwise teacher dominated world, reporting a variety of topics in both written and video form. Students will control the material reported, how it is covered, the flow of the website, and the complete editorial process.

Feel free to explore the sections of the website, with topics ranging from news in ole Buchanan to the world at large. Expect weekly articles on school sports, events, and student achievement, as well as hearing students’ ideas on “what’s what” in the world. There will also be weekly videos, letting students know what to look forward to in the week following.

The most important part of the Knightly News, and I cannot stress this enough, is that students use this newfound mouthpiece to give recognition and praise to those who fly under the radar, heighten awareness to issues that require attention, and shape the Knightly News into a newspaper that truly has its fingers on the pulse of James River.

Readers are “in the driver’s seat” as much as the columnists and editors putting this newspaper together. Let’s stir the pot!

Please forward all comments, suggestions, complaints, ideas, wisecracks, snips, and everything else to jrknightlynews@gmail.com. Students may also make their opinions heard in the comment section found on every one of our articles.

Olivia Hoye, dancing queen? Yes. When Liv is not at the dance studio, she can probably be spotted driving her silver Subaru to the nearest coffee shop to grab a drink and study with friends. Ever want to make Olivia’s day? Just take her to get cheesecake and she will love you forever. Olivia is a senior at James River and she plans to study journalism in college.

Cameron Hildebrand’s best mornings start with a vanilla iced latte in her hand. She loves going to the beach and spending lazy days with her pups, Sassy and Paisley. Ironically Cameron’s homecoming and prom dresses were both red. Cam, as she is known to her friends, has gone through three cars in her driving career.
