My name is Jerry Curran, and I am a junior at Sturgis East. I enjoy writing sports, current events and opinion articles for the Sturgis StormWatch. I am also a member of the Sturgis ROVers club, which is a group that studies marine biology and deploys deep sea robots to examine the ocean. In my free time, I play baseball as well as basketball. I have been studying Spanish for five years and I absolutely love it. Moreover, I am the Teen Director of ProjectNextGeneration.org, an international not-for-profit organization, where I mentor youth and do speaking engagements.

My name is Elise Kane. I am a sophomore at Sturgis East. I joined the Sturgis StormWatch because I love writing about events happening at our school, interviewing people, and expressing my ideas through writing. I am a dancer, pianist, and singer. I also love to go on walks, bike rides, and in the summer, I love to go boating. I also participate in Sturgis Singers and A Cappella which are both singing groups at Sturgis. In terms of my writing experience, I did a writers retreat in middle school and I have written short stories and composed many other short pieces. I am so excited to be able to write for the school Newspaper at Sturgis!

I can’t wait to see what this opportunity with the StormWatch holds for me!
Hello! My name is Sophie and I am currently a senior at Sturgis. I love photography, writing, art, learning, traveling, teaching and volunteering.
