The 15 East News crew is pumped, and as excited as ever this school year at William Peace University. With big stories to cover, such as the appointment of the 11th WPU president, Dr. Brian Ralph, to the $1.5 million donation given by a Peace College Alumna, it’s going to be interesting to see what comes next for 15 East News.
15 East was created in the 2014-15 school year by two individuals, Peace College graduate, Faith Inman and current student, Terrace Myles, as “15 East Sports” covering WPU athletics on a biweekly basis.
The 15 East News Team felt changing the name from “15 East Sports” to “15 East News” would help to give them more perspective, and bring more information to the table, to keep students up to date with events on campus.
Recently, the News Crew of five WPU Students released a video to promote their news showing a little personality to the song “Sugar” by Maroon 5. It’s seems quite clear that the news team is ready for the actual fun to begin, covering news stories around their favorite campus.
“As a member of 15 East News, I have high expectations for what we can accomplish as a unit”, said WPU Senior and 15 East News Reporter, Quinton Howard, “I look forward to connecting multiple subject-matters to WPU. Who knows how far we can go? That is what gets you up to do the work”
WPU is a small, intimate university that has a rich history of building relationships between students and faculty, and 15 East News wants to promote that in ways it’s never been done before. Students on the 15 East Team want to grow as news reporters by connecting with the students and faculty.
“I am really excited to work with future journalist and to connect with our student body through news”, said WPU junior and 15 East News reporter Maya Bryant.
“I hope that I grow as a journalist and that I, along with the team of 15 East News can really inform the student body of WPU”, Bryant continued to say.
15 East News is extremely excited to see where they can go in the future, with many stories to cover throughout the year, it is interesting to see how far they can this year.
