This just in. On Friday, January 28th, KING 5 North Bureau Reporter, Jake Whittenberg, visited Haller Middle School to speak about the exciting career of a news reporter!
Ms. Schmitz and Mr. Kiehn, Haller Middle School’s 7th grade Language Arts teachers, assigned a research project to their students to explore careers that they are interested in involving reading, writing, math and science. Ashlynn, a 7th grade student interested in news reporting, wrote a charming letter to KING 5 requesting a news reporter to come and speak to her class about the career.
Thanks to Ashlynn, Jake was able to share his story with the class including his education at Montana State and career path as a news reporter. Along with a few key tips, Jake emphasized to “always follow your dreams” and “don’t be afraid to ask for help.”
