The St. Mary’s All-State TV news students pictured include – Stephanie Hernandez – Castro, Gabe Elsden, Evie AlSaffar, Alex Merten, Kendall Snyder, Tanner Snyder and Cale Murray.

The TV News students were Stephanie Hernandez-Castro, Evie AlSaffar, Gabe Elsden, Alex Merten, Kendall Snyder, Tanner Snyder and Cale Murray. The short film students included Cale Murray, Gabe Elsden, Sam Peters, Tanner Snyder and Josh Feltner.

Seven students created a TV News broadcast CNBABCNBC News. They reported on an array of topics; a new walking club in town, a local staring contest, a dog stuck in a tree and new mosquito eating money species. This fun video also included a TV commercial about H2Woah water.

The TV news students generated their own story ideas and worked Buena Vista University students Cooper Maahs and Morgan McGrew and Professor Jerry Johnson to utilize the BVU recording studio.

The Club is a short film about a young man completing the nearly impossible task of shooting another man’s bullet in mid-air in order to become a member of the exclusive “Club”. The celebration is short lived though, as things do not go as planned. These five men wrote, acted, directed, shot and edited the film. They included music, different camera angles, and special effects to make the movie.

The Iowa High School Speech Association held their state competition February 3, in four different locations in Iowa. The IHSSA serves 487 member schools and 40,000 students. Storm Lake St. Mary’s coaches are Deb Peters and Sara Sennert.
