Editor & Chief
Hello there! I am back for another year as Editor & Chief, sadly for all of you. This is my third year at DMACC, and I’m excited to be back on campus like everyone else. However, I am sad that I have to wear regular clothes to class instead of my pajamas like I did last year. I’m still passionate about cemeteries, genealogy and coffee, but I’m not passionate about waking up early. This will be my last year here, and I plan on making it a great one!
Social Media Coordinator:
Salutations peoples of the interwebs! My name is Hailey Clubine, I’m 19, and this is my second year as the Social Media Coordinator for Banner News. I love reading and writing, and my taste in literature has little to no limitations. I love lore and mythology, and cultures outside and inside of America fascinate me to little to no end. I speak a bit of Spanish and French, and I want to travel the world. Money is still a main subject of issue, but, “Adventure is out there!”
Video Production Coordinator
Back for another year, hopefully covid free, here at DMACC! Hi everybody, my name is Camry Jones, and I am not just a basketball player anymore, I am part of the Banner News team this year. I am originally from Milford, Iowa, where I graduated from Okoboji High. If you were to ask any of my teachers where to find me, it was the Digital Media Room! I have a background with broadcasting and video production as we had our own news broadcast called Boji Student News. I am hoping to pursue a career in Video Production and Sports marketing, and Banner News will help me develop my skills to reach that goal. Here at Banner, I hope to bring my knowledge of digital media and editing to the table to further the success of the student-led news! I can not wait to work alongside the talented students in my class and the influential teachers here at DMACC.
Hi everyone, welcome back to school! Life hasn’t been normal for a while, so this is our chance to make the best of this year. This is my first year on Banner, and I’m excited to see what adventures await me. I live in Ames and this will be my third year attending DMACC, but first at Boone. I am a CNA and work in the skilled nursing wing of a nursing home. I love helping people and plan to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I’m always up for a challenge and look forward to learning many new things about the world. I’ve been involved in a bit of journalism in the past, but hope to learn much more. I’ve also taken six semesters of photography and hope to capture some great shots! The ever-amazing English teacher, Amy Prochaska is my mom, so I’ve always been submerged in a world of curiosity and learning. I’m very excited to be a part of Banner and expand all of our knowledge!
Hello everyone, my name is Alex Loew. This is my first year in the journalism program, and I am very excited to start with this new major. I am from Carroll, Iowa, where I graduated from Carroll High School. I have an older brother, younger twin brothers, and a sister who is the youngest. I played many sports throughout high school including baseball, basketball, track, and football. I have experience with media production from high school. I was a part of Tiger Vision which is a large prestigious media production company run by the students at Carroll High. During my time in Tiger Vision, I did a lot of sports broadcasting and sports writing. The two sports I mainly covered for Tiger Vision were volleyball and both boys and girls basketball. I also spent last fall season covering football for Carroll Broadcasting. I am very excited to get to work, and I hope that I can use my skills to help make Banner News bigger and better!
