Eli Poe, editor-in-chief

Hello, I am Elijah Poe, the editor in chief for the 2021-2022 school year. This is my third year on staff and the fourth year of being involved with the Journalism Program.

Kate Beaman, reporter

My name is Kate Beaman, and I am a reporter on Timberlines staff. Being in the journalism program has been one of my favorite things throughout high school. The environment of the newspaper team makes the class extremely fun. I love being involved with the school and student body. While being on newspaper staff, I am also a cheerleader and in Student Council.

 

Corey Bentz, photographer

Since I was younger, my mom had always had her camera in her hand and would document every moment of our life. As we moved, she got busy, and her camera was stolen, so she couldn’t continue what she loved most. I’ve always wanted to carry on what she loved. I’m really excited to be on the Timberlines staff and show what I can do.

 

Logan Connor, reporter

I’m Logan Connor, and I’m a sophomore. I am a first year reporter on the Timberlines staff. I fell in love with writing during Journalism 1 my freshman year.

Braelynn Dotson, photographer

My name is Braelynn Dotson, and I’m a photographer on the Timberlines staff. I really like experimenting with many different angles and locations when I am taking photos. I like taking sports photos because there is a lot of room for creativity and there is a lot of time to adjust and get the perfect photo. I have been on the staff for three years, and I have enjoyed my time as a photographer.

 

Ian Flowers

I started taking photos in my freshman journalism class, and I found myself constantly trying to take the best photos. I became a photographer for the newspaper staff my sophomore year, and I’ve been doing it ever since. I am now entering my senior year and have a high expectation for myself. Being a photographer allows me to be creative and look at things from different angles. If I could choose a specific topic to take photos of, I think I would have to say cars, houses and busy areas.

Aside from newspaper, I’m on the swim team.

 

Evan Jacobs, photo coordinator

My favorite things to photograph are weddings, sports and my friends.
