I joined The Blackman Voice my sophomore year (I am now a rising senior), and with all the events that have happened over the past year, I am lucky to be a part of the staff. The current events have given me inspiration to write, whether it be about COVID or politics. I have always loved editing things, and I am so excited to be editor in chief next year!
The staff environment is so friendly and welcoming, helping even an introvert feel comfortable being themselves.
Teacher recommendations are required for the application process, and your teachers should be notified as soon as you decide to apply.
Good luck, and we hope to see your application! Go Blaze!
