Early this year the Booster and Yearbook staffs presented something new to AHS: Media Day! Media Day helps the Booster and Yearbook staff gain more knowledge of Abilene’s sports and those participating. It allows athletes to have some fun before the season starts. The event is hosted at the beginning of the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Media Day provides the opportunity for athletes to get their picture taken and try to make them look as “dope” as possible. Some players will even be interviewed by the Booster Staff in order to get quotes for future articles and videos.
The Winter Media Day will be held Friday, Nov. 19 during the school day beginning at 8 a.m. The sports that will be covered for the Winter season are: Boys and Girls Basketball, Boys and Girls Wrestling, the Dance Team, and the Basketball and Wrestling Cheer Squads. Parents may pre-order team or individual photos that are taken on Media Day by using the information provided by their coaches. Group photos will also be taken of the band and clubs. Proceeds from the sale of photos goes directly to the AHS student media department for student benefit.
This new tradition has opened up new ways to provide content for the Booster and other student media audio/visual projects, so keep an eye out for great things to come!
