This year, The Squire has made some major changes and we’ve brought on more staff members than usual. We now have two Co-Editors, and our Senior Co-Editor is Allie Schutt. Allie is a dedicated student who obviously enjoys journalism, and The Squire spoke with her to introduce her to you.
The Squire: What inspired you to apply for Co-Editor?
Allie Schutt: Kayla Kuppertz really inspired me to apply. I have the literary skills to fulfill this position due to my participation in advanced English classes. At first I didn’t think I would fit the position well, but I was convinced otherwise by Kayla and Miss Howe.
TS: How has becoming an editor affected you?
AS: Being an editor has really changed my life. I spend a lot of my study halls editing articles when we’re getting the newspaper ready for publishing. I also feel really important in class when I can make authoritative decisions.
TS: What other activities are you a part of?
AS: Aside from being the Senior Co-Editor and Secretary of the Journalism Club, I am involved in many activities. I support the basketball team from the sidelines due to an injury to my brain during my sophomore year. I am also in youth group. In my free time, I enjoy obsessing over bands rather than being involved in a lot of other activities.
TS: What would you say is your true passion?
AS: My true passion would have to be marrying Calum Hood.
TS: Do you have any hidden talents?
AS: I can play guitar. I play the electric guitar every Sunday at church and the acoustic in my free time. I want to learn how to play the bass, but I’m not good enough yet.
TS: What are your plans after graduation?
AS: After graduation, I hope to go to Los Angeles for a few days before eventually attending Kent State University as an interior design major.
TS: If you had to choose between being co-editor or being the world’s fastest rock-wall climber, which would you pick?
AS: I would definitely pick being the Co-Editor because I’m not very good at mountain climbing.
TS: What do you think is the best part of being in journalism?
AS: The best part of being in journalism is being able to brighten my mornings by seeing Miss Howe.
TS: If you started a band, what would you call it and what kind of music would you play?
AS: If I started a band, I would probably suggest being called The Rejects or something edgy like that. Our music would be One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer inspired. We might have some alternative-type music in there too. We would do a lot of covers and eventually get famous.
We hope you make it big with your band Allie, and save us some back-stage passes! All-in-all, The Squire is extremely honored to have the marvelous senior, guitarists, and band enthusiast, Allie Schutt, editing our articles. Good luck with all of your future endeavors!
