Glorianna Nichols

Senior Staffer

 Hi! My name is Glorianna Nichols and I’m a senior this year. This is my first year being a part of Newspaper staff (and last, sadly). It’s also my first year being a part of Yearbook staff. I love art so I’m currently taking AP Art, Graphic Design II at the LIFT, and I’m a member of the National Art Honor Society. Other than that, my life is pretty boring. I plan on going to Texas A&M for art and possibly for journalism, too!

Samuel Villa

senior Staffer

Hello, I’m Samuel Villa. I am a writer and editor for the Battery website and a cameraman for the morning broadcast. This is my third for the paper. I’m studying journalism here and A/V production at ATEMS. I plan to start a YouTube series as my first career where I can use my interviewing skills and learn how to direct a group of people. (Heads up for anyone interested in acting) I’ve enjoyed my time here exponentially, learning more than I ever once thought. That would be a dream job.

My name is Jane Hakiyimana,  I am a senior this year and I have been a part of the AHS Battery for three years now. Other than Newspaper I am also a part time Holland Medical student and am looking forward to graduating in May to start my journey in becoming a psychiatrist. Beyond high school, I plan on being a part of the newspaper team at the college I get accepted into (fingers crossed it’s the Spelman Blueprint). In my free time I like to watch reality shows and use Twitter.

Greetings fellow humans, my name is Francine Munezero. I’m a sophomore this year, and this is my first year in Newspaper. I’m also on the golf team and this will be my second year playing. My favorite subject is math because it has always come really easy to me. I hope to work in CPS when I get older because I’ve always wanted to work with kids, but I also don’t want to be stuck in a classroom all day.
