Exeter-Milligan Update: English and Journalism

Hello from the Exeter-Milligan 10-12 English and Journalism classroom! 
By Ashley Stutzman, E-M Language Arts Instructor

It has been a busy semester, and I can’t believe the holiday break is almost here. One of the projects that has kept us busy this semester was the creation of the Striv Team here at Exeter-Milligan. As part of the Journalism course, my students do a lot of work with Striv, an online streaming service, and Class Intercom, a program which allows students to create their own content for the school’s social media accounts. One new aspect of this is the Striv Team, which was created at the beginning of the school year. The Striv Team consists of juniors Blake Meyer and Sean Gibson, sophomore Christopher Kelch, and eighth-grader Trenton Vossler. These students share responsibilities in live streaming school activities for all of our viewers to enjoy. In addition, it gives these students the opportunity to learn more about broadcasting and other related fields firsthand. It has been great to watch these students work together in making sure that they are providing a good experience for the viewers. Striv is a wonderful opportunity for anyone to watch school events and activities throughout the school year, even if they are unable to attend in person. I look forward to seeing this organization and its work grow in the future. 

Thanks for reading about our classroom happenings, and I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the semester! 

A group of Exeter-Milligan students attended the Fall Striv Conference in Lincoln earlier this semester. Students reflected on current projects and gathered new ideas in regards to content for the school’s various social media platforms. Pictured are front (L-R): Ty Underwood, Trenton Vossler, Blake Meyer, Morgan White and Jozie Kanode. Back (L-R): Christopher Kelch, Sean Gibson, Ryan Sharp, Jasmine Turrubiates, and Olivea Swanson.

Blake Meyer and Trenton Vossler, two members of the Striv Team, work together to live stream a home basketball game.
