The 2014-2015 Damascus Middle School News Crew recently went to work! Composed of anchors Caleb C., Gracie S., Jake S., and Drew W.; cameraman Ethan G.; technician Hanna D.; and weatherwoman Jenna G., the crew is responsible for everything required to run a news show.

After leading the school in observing the Moment of Silence and saying the Pledge of Allegiance, the crew puts together a lively show of important morning announcements, including the lunch menu, birthdays, the word of the day, school events, and the daily weather forecast. The process of becoming a member of the News Crew began while these eighth-graders were still in seventh grade and consisted of their submission of an application, which included three references from teachers. Principal Dixie Hunter then looked at the students’ grades, attendance, and discipline records to select the seven members of the Damascus Middle School News Crew. We look forward to beginning each day with them!
