I love the club because I love creative writing and expressing my perspective of the world and thoughts about life through my writing.

Mrs. Kidder

Advisor

My name is Mrs. Kidder and I teach senior English at Armstrong High School. I also teach Creative Writing I and Creative Writing II. In the spring of 2016, I was asked to take over as newspaper advisor. Since then, many students have participated on staff and developed the paper into the product that it is today. Every year brings new growth and ideas as the world of communication constantly changes. I am extremely proud of what the students have accomplished already this year. It is quite fabulous to work with students who choose extra writing as their after-school activity!

I'm Max Salsgiver! This is my senior year at AHS, and though I've always loved writing in its many forms, I only recently decided to join the Hawks' View staff. My newly-established interest in photography was the main reason I joined, but I'm also eager to exercise my writing ability and gain firsthand experience of the interview process. In addition to the Hawks' Nest, I was a member of the Creative Writing club as a freshman and I am currently president of the AJSHS Quiz Bowl team.

Within newspaper I mainly focus on photography, which I have always enjoyed, but I hope to use it as a way to help improve my writing abilities. I am also a section leader within the Sr. High band, and am additionally involved in the Rifle Team, Taiko, and SAGE Club. Though I won’t be able to stay for long, I hope to help the newspaper for the year I am here, and have fun doing it.

Trinity Appleman

Hi, my name is Trinity Appleman, and I'm a senior at AHS. This is my first year with the Hawks' View. I started working for the club before officially joining. When I officially joined, it was because I enjoyed the work I was already doing, specifically working with sales, advertising and talking to our school staff about our newspaper and the things happening in our school. I hope to help out wherever I can moving forward.

This year I mainly plan to be a writer, but will help out with editing and photography when I can. I can't wait to see my work published and I'm proud to write for my school. Go Hawks!

Anthony Reitano

Hey I’m Anthony Reitano! I am a junior here at AHS, and this year is my first year writing columns for the school newspaper. I joined this year because I love writing, editing, and web-development. In the future, I would love to become a professional sports writer, so that I get to interview famous sports stars and attend Super Bowl and World Series games every year. I am currently an Executive Leadership Board Member for LEO club. In the coming year, I plan to make the school a better place by writing about different topics that will improve our school for the better.
