AURORA, IL — Waubonsie Valley High School seniors Sarah Giffin, Liz McPherson, Rachel Minarick, and Kate Sonricker have been named WVTV’s Students of the Month for November 2013.
McPherson, Minarick, and Sonricker worked together to produce a feature story about Waubonsie’s Veterans Day Assembly in early November. The students drew appreciative and emotional responses from veterans, both current and retired, from all branches of the military.
Giffin helped to produce a feature story on WV Marketing’s trip to DisneyWorld. Giffin interviewed theme park staff, along with students and staff who organized and took part in the educational field trip, which gave a behind-the-scenes look at how Disney operates.
Both stories appeared on Episode 7 of Warrior Update, which tallied over 1,000 views on YouTube and Vimeo.
Sonricker, McPherson and Giffin have all been in the WVTV program for three years. After graduation, Sonricker will attend Ohio State University to pursue Psychology, McPherson will attend Western Illinois University to major in Special Education, and Giffin will attend College of DuPage to major in Education. Minarick has been in the program for two years and will be headed to Michigan State University to major in Kinesiology.
