For our last episode of BJJTV for this school year, we decided to produce a story about summer plans. We know that there are many people at WHS who are traveling or have different, unique plans for their summer. As a matter of fact, many of us on the story have really fun camps, workshops, and travel plans also, so we drew some inspiration and ideas from our personal experiences!
We knew that WHS History Teacher, Allison Graves, was in a couple of selective fellowships and taking a student tour to Europe this summer. When it came time to interview people, she was the perfect choice. She gave a lot of details about her upcoming summer plans and we could tell through the interview that she was very excited about her summertime opportunities.
Madi Ridder also applied for the Missouri Agribusiness Academy, and was selected for it. She is involved in FFA, and is also one of the FFA area officers. Her interview went really well. She provided insight into how she thinks this workshop will help her in FFA.
We also knew that Abbie Kipp is involved in religious camps and activities through her church. We felt like she could add another interesting layer to our story in that some summer opportunities aren't just about education, they are also about faith.
After our interviews, we quickly slated and logged them, and then got to work writing our script. The script came together very nicely on paper, but when it came time to edit the video we had some problems. After some help from Ms. Turner, we got back on track to finish the story on time.
Our story is short and to the point, but overall we like the end product. We hope that everyone watching gets inspired. Summer is a good time to not only catch up on some Netflix and hang out by a pool, it's also a chance to learn and grow as an individual. We hope that you have a great summer and take advantage of any opportunities that come your way.
