Timberlines Staff

Faith Peebles, editor-in-chief

My name is Faith Peebles. I am editor-in-chief of the Timberlines newspaper, and was editor-in-chief of our Impact magazine last year. I am currently the GHS student body president, and also serve as the secretary of the Greenwood Mayor’s Youth Council. This is my seventh year cheering at Greenwood for both basketball and football, and have been on the competition cheer team for the past two years. Being on the Timberlines staff has taught me to always push for the truth. The initial answers that someone gives when you pose a question are typically just the tip of the iceberg, and if there’s one thing Denise Roberts has taught me, it’s to always ask those follow up questions.

 

Gentry Appleget, photographer & reporter

I’m Gentry Appleget. I am a writer and photographer on staff. I love newspaper staff because I enjoy telling and showing the stories that people unfamiliar with the matter wouldn’t know about. Outside of staff, I do photography as a job, I travel, and fish. While I started doing photography before I was involved in journalism, journalism has given me skills and opportunities that have carried over into my own endeavors.

Ian Flowers, photographer

I started taking photos in my freshman journalism class, and I found myself constantly trying to take the best photos.

Being a photographer allows you to be creative and look at things from another angle. If I could choose a specific topic to take photos of, I think I would have to say cars, houses, and busy areas.
