Amber Gardner

By: Kayla Kuppertz Editor-in-Chief

The Squire has seen a lot of changes over the past year, one of them being the introduction of a couple new editor positions. Amber Gardner fills one such position as a Media Manager. Amber is a senior this year, and in her third year of journalism, so her experience makes her a great fit. The Squire spoke with Amber to get to know her a little better.

The Squire: What inspired you to apply for Media Manager?

Amber Gardner: I’m really big on social media, and I enjoy taking pictures and videos.

TS: What do you do as a Media Manager?

AG: I go to most of the school events and I take pictures and videos for our social media pages and our website.

TS: What do you enjoy the most about being in journalism?

AG: I really enjoy the video projects.  We are also listening to a podcast called Serial and I enjoy listening to that too.

TS: How do you feel about the changes that were made to the club this year?

AG: It didn’t have a huge impact on me but I like that we switch news anchors and I like that we added in the media manager position.

TS: What other activities are you involved in?

AG: The only activities I do are competition dance, along with recital dance.

TS: How do you feel about your senior year so far?

AG: It made me realize that I probably shouldn’t go to college for another 12 years to be a dentist.  It’s not bad but I wish it would end quicker.

TS: What are your plans for after graduation?

AG: I’m going to Penn Tech for Dental Hygiene.

TS: Do you have any hidden talents? What are they?

AG: I can sing and dance, but everyone knows I can dance 😉

TS: What will you miss the most about Eisenhower?

AG: Seeing my friends every day and Miss. Howe.

TS: How accurate do you think your Squire horoscope is?

AG: I think it’s very accurate.

The Squire is very lucky to have a star like Amber on our staff. As one of three students in journalism three, Amber has definitely earned her spot as an editor. Hopefully she will make all of our future dentist appointments better. Good luck at tech school Amber, The Squire will certainly miss you!

Samara Warren

By: Allie Schutt Senior Co-Editor

This year, the Journalism Club at Eisenhower decided to add positions to The Squire staff. Samara Warren was chosen as one of the media managers. Her role as a media manager includes updating The Squire Instagram and Twitter on events happening in the community and at EHS. The Squire talked to Samara to get to know more about her.

The Squire: Why did you apply to be a media manager for The Squire?

Samara Warren: I applied to be the media manager because Ms. Howe told me that I would be good for the job, due to my experience with social media. Also, I enjoy interacting and talking with people about The Squire.

TS: What does your role as a media manager include?

SW: As media manager I write blog posts on the website, and update our Twitter and Instagram with what’s going on at Eisenhower during that time period. My Partner in Crime, Amber Gardner, is also a media manage so we do all of this together.

TS: What are your plans after you graduate?

SW: I plan on going to college to either JCC for two years or Pitt Bradford. I still have other colleges I want to check out. Then I’m going to adopt many dogs and live in a purple house.

TS: Word on the street is that you are the 2015 Eisenhower High School Homecoming Queen. How do you feel about that?

SW: I felt awesome about being Homecoming Queen! I loved seeing people that I didn’t even know come up to me and say congratulations even weeks after Homecoming. I got to pick the song that Louie and I got to dance to, and I still wear my crown around my house. It was a great experience.

TS: Who is your favorite boy band and boy band member? Why?

SW: My favorite boyband is One Direction. Zayn WAS my favorite member because I loved him from day one, but we all know that didn’t last. Niall is definitely my top fav now because he’s absolutely adorable, his voice brings me life, and I’m a sucker for blonde hair and blue eyes.

TS: If you could be any super hero, what would you be and why?

SW: I would be Superman because who wouldn’t want to be Superman? I would be strong; I could fly, and be pretty much indestructible, except when it comes to Kryptonite.

TS: Would you rather be an octopus or a cheetah? Why?

SW: I would be a cheetah because I would love being able to run extremely fast. The ocean scares me so I would never want to be an octopus.


As you can see, Samara is a cool dude with a great taste in music. She fits the position of media manager well because she attends almost every school event. We sure are glad that Miss Howe chose her as a media manager! Good luck in all that you do, Sammy Jammy! (Don’t forget to watch out for those centipedes!)

Allie Schutt

By: Kayla Kuppertz Editor-in-Chief

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!
