End-of-year ramblings of Adam Daugherty
My strength as a member of the Pawprint is writing stories for sports. I have grown exponentially as a writer of all fields. This class has taught me how to write properly and to be a good interviewer. I will be taking my talents to Newspaper 2 next year. I feel as if it is key for my success as a writer to take this class.
The best parts of this year have been spending time with “the beard” (Mr. Bovaird) and my friends. Plus, you know, Mr. Bovaird did teach me a few things that will allow me to go far as a writer. The worst part about this year is that I had to take pictures. I’m not very good at that at all. Another bad part about this year, is when the teacher shaved his beard. I really enjoyed looking at that glorious mass of hair that calls Robert Bovaird’s face its home.
I feel that our adviser did a fantastic job this year. Even though he was a so called “rookie,” he had an outstanding year, not only as my adviser, but as life coach. The only thing that I think he needs to do differently is the way he assigns stories. I feel if you are more into sports then you should only cover sports stories, or if you only want to take pictures, then you should only have to take pictures. I feel that when we have a larger staff, we will be able to make this happen so that each kid can master his or her special field of expertise.
I would just like to take a step back and thank Mr. Bovaird for all the hard work he has put into our newspaper and the dedication he has shown.
