Emma Stauffer
   Senior Emma Stauffer has always had her eye on the prize but took a different approach when

it came to joining The Bell.

   “My journey to starting newspaper is kind of different than some peoples' because I didn’t join it

my freshmen year. I kind of let my anxieties about high school get in the way of me doing what I

really wanted to.”   Stauffer said. “So instead I took Journalism I which is the class that used to be

offered and taught by the former Newspaper sponsor. I joined that and ended up really

connecting with the teacher and really liking journalism and writing.”

    With a little encouragement from the newspaper sponsor, and a year of high school under her belt; Stauffer joined 

The Bell staff. She immediately fell in love with the atmosphere, the people, and the real impact she could make on 

student body. 

   “It’s unlike any class that I've ever taken before and most of the time it doesn't even feel like a

class it just feels like a club where you’re just with your friends.” 

   When a foreign exchange student came to LHS in 2019 Emma had the chance to interview her

and learn about her experiences. Through this she found her passion for writing about students

and events around the school.

   “I really like the stories about people. I think the stories about events, I enjoy writing them. But I really like it 

when I get to write about peoples’ emotional aspects.”

   Although Emma is sure what life after high school will look like for her, she is positive that writing and newspaper 

will always have a special place in her heart. 

“I’m still trying to figure out my plans for after high school. I change my mind everyday. I know I will always love writing.”
