The Voice of Deming High
Who We Are
The Broadcaster has been an integral part of Deming High School dating back to 1917. According to archived issues by Mr. Kenneth Leupold, former DHS teacher and advisor to the Broadcaster, it was a student newspaper that highlighted local activities and events. As we celebrate the 103 year anniversary of the Broadcaster, we will modernize this medium in the digital era as an online magazine. Gone are the days of digging in your backpack for a quarter to check out the latest Did You Know… and Horoscope.
We will continue many of the traditions and articles that date back to the early issues. The creative writing and poetry section will pay tribute to the Wildcat publication, The Sunburst. The Sunburst was a journal dedicated entirely to poetry, creative writing, and short stories.
We will also strive to stay up to date on the latest school news, events, and trends. Our main goal is to remain a platform for students to exhibit artwork, photography, music, and comment on current events.
We have great ideas planned for the issues ahead, but we need your input. The Broadcaster is a class, but we also welcome contributions from all students. We are looking for enthusiastic and committed students to join our team. What articles are you interested in reading or writing?
Whatever your interest, you can be a member of the Broadcaster crew. You can email us at Broadcaster@demingps.org.
Do you enjoy writing? Are you up to date with the latest news? If you said yes to any of those questions, then you would be an amazing Journalist. If you consider taking this class, you would be accomplishing two things. You would have a class you love while obtaining an elective credit. You will be contributing to our school newspaper.
Journalism is an elective class for high-school students. In Journalism you are required to turn in an article form describing what you are interested in writing about and then the final article. Everyone in the class is nice and easy to make friends with. You will have an amazing teacher who helps you with whatever you need at any moment. Also, she helps you come up with topics if you are stuck and how to get started. Finally, if you find it easy to write a couple paragraphs each week and have good time management, I think you would be perfect fit for Journalism.
