Students (Volume 1: Fall 2011)

Academics

45 out of 96 seniors qualified to receive a John and Abigail Adams Scholarship which entitles them to four years of free tuition upon acceptance to a participating Massachusetts public institution of higher education, including a University of Massachusetts campus, a Massachusetts state university, or a community college.  Congratulations!

Abigail Titcomb and Sara Sweeten were invited to represent Sturgis at the annual Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod on November 1. They attended the event with Marion Weeks.  Philanthropy Day is sponsored by the Planned Giving Council of Cape Cod (PGCCC)  to encourage charitable giving, promote cooperation, and foster a better understanding among professional charitable giving planners, and also to further the education of its members, the professional community, and the general field of charitable giving.

In October, Mr. Hyer and six student journalists traveled to the Harvard Crimson newspaper office for its second annual high school journalism workshop. Alicia Pollard, Kevin Agostinelli, Meghan Agostinelli,Anna Campbell, Lucie Palmeri, Rachael Bardfield were the students who represented Sturgis.

The six-hour conference covered a variety of journalism topics such as photography, design and layout, sports reporting, hard news, and feature writing. The students learned real-world tips on how to ask the right questions, creating story ideas, and crafting a good story on a deadline. Because the conference is organized and taught by Harvard students, it is far less intimidating for high school students to ask questions because they are much closer in age. All of the students left the conference feeling energized and inspired. Much of what they learned has been applied in the recent edition of The StormWatch and placed on the newspaper’s blog, sturgismedia.com.
