As we progress to another year of dances and musical events, I had the idea of compiling a survey that included possible requests for songs to be played at these dances and events. Not only would this diversify the types of music played at these events, but it would make the environment more inclusive as well. After students send the survey into me, I, along with other students interested, would go through the list and pick songs to make it to the final playlist in which we can use for whatever dance is approaching. This method would be repeated a few days or perhaps a week in advance before a dance would occur.

My co-curricular alternative program is to take a leadership role in the sports commentary program. I have multiple trimesters of experience researching teams, creating supplementary social media content, and calling games. I am excited to share new ideas to help the program reach even greater heights. Prioritizing research for roster creation and statistics will improve the stories student commentators can tell. Increasing social media output will help connect the diverse Deerfield athletics audience. Specifically, I plan to conduct more interviews with coaches and players for the Deerfield Sports Media Instagram account. Changing game assignments to a weekly basis will create more structure for the broadcasting schedule. With more preparation time, in-game analysis and research can go into further detail and reduce stress on the commentator. The implementation of running statistics can aid student commentators in forming stories for the audience to consider throughout the game. Adding in-game content, such as trivia questions, fan reactions, or fun facts from the Archives office, during break periods can enhance the crowd experience and immerse viewers to a higher degree. The co-curricular window would be filled by a mixture of research, social media content creation, and calling games. I aspire to take the lead on varsity baseball broadcasts and utilize these ideas to enhance coverage and help make this season special!

Being well informed about school issues, but also national and international issues is an important part of being a citizen in the community.

Mary O’Hara, a writer for BBC, wrote that, “Humour is a great way for us to have evolved so we don’t have to hit each other with sticks” and we completely agree. In a world where tensions are on the rise, humor allows us to release emotions we would not otherwise be able to let out. At the Scrawl, we have the unique ability to ease some of the stress surrounding the issues we care most about. You may not be used to hearing your news in the form of memes and jokes, but we hope you enjoy it more this way.
