Phoebe Sessler, Editor in Chief

Phoebe Sessler is a senior at Warren Hills and beyond excited to return to the newspaper for her second year, this time as an Editor in Chief. Phoebe has always loved writing and enjoys Journalism as an outlet to express herself, cultivate her craft, and engage with the community in meaningful and critical ways. Her first article for The Streak as a guest writer in sophomore year began her love for journalistic writing. When she isn’t writing, you can find her taking classes or working at a yoga studio to earn her yoga teacher certification. She also enjoys filming, or curating environmentally sustainable clothing for herself and her shop. She loves nature and tries to get outside as much as possible, whether kayaking, hiking, cleaning up trails, or going on adventures with her friends and family. Phoebe plays the bass guitar in marching band, serves as National Honor Society Secretary, an executive of Students Against Vandalizing the Earth, and Girl Up Vice President. She hopes to major in Film at a four-year university with a minor in Communications, and would love to work for or collaborate with a non-profit organization as soon out of college as possible.

The annual Halloween party, costume contest, and parade brought the senior class together for their last October at Hills. Each group or single costume had a moment on stage to announce their look for the judges and pose for pictures. The entire school then got out of class for a few minutes last block to watch the procession of Halloween ensembles. After the parade, the seniors came back for the judges’ final decision. Ivan Podobed was crowned as Best Overall Male Costume for his rendition of a ”Zoltar Speaks” boardwalk fortune teller, complete with painted cardboard booth, crystal ball, and mystic garb. “I love attention, so getting all that positive attention is great,” said Podobed, “even though I was kind of expecting it.” Sarah Hale was awarded Best Overall Female Costume for her Claire Standish (Molly Ringwald) look from the Breakfast Club, based on her striking likeness to the 80s actress. Both winners received a free prom ticket. Other smaller prizes, such as Warren Hills spirit wear, were given out to category winners like “Most Controversial,” “Most School Spirited,” and “Best Couples Costume.” (Photo Courtesy of Richard Patricia)
