Journalism members compete at State Journalism

Journalism members walked away from State Journalism with placements ranging from fifth all the way to second.

Four students, Ericka Kroeker ‘22, Jackson Martin ‘23, Trenton Ruhnke ‘23, and Eliza Kroeker ‘24, qualified for state, but only the Kroekers and Ruhnke attended alongside their adviser Jed Martin. While at State Journalism on April 25, Ericka Kroeker placed fifth in Newspaper Column Writing and second in Yearbook Theme Copy Writing;  Ruhnke placed third in Newspaper Layout; and Eliza Kroeker placed fourth in Newspaper News Writing.

“My favorite part was when I was on stage for Yearbook Theme Copy Writing and they were not calling my name until I got second,” Ericka Kroeker said. “I was honestly really impressed with myself, but I did not think that I was going to place second. I was really proud of myself.”
