In the month of October Heritage celebrated National School Lunch week with a video tribute to the school’s cafeteria staff.  The video depicted a behind the scenes look at how the school’s food was prepared each day.  During the shooting of this video, Ms. Patricia Crawford, a cafeteria worker stated how pleased she was with Chelsea’s interview with her conducted days earlier.  “Chelsea did such a great job with interviewing me and I was so impressed with her.  She did an amazing job” stated Crawford.  Chelsea’s story entitled “The Inside Edition on Cafeteria Food” was sure to please as it hit the front page of the Hurricane Watch.

“I was very impressed with how fast Chelsea learned the key journalism concepts taught in class.” stated Journalism Teacher Mr. Williams.

“I never expected to win the award.  It was a bit surprising actually.  I loved the cupcakes.” stated Chelsea.

Next month there will be a new student selected so be sure to do your best work.
