The High Post

Jace O’Barto
My name is Jace O’Barto and I am a senior here at Greater Latrobe High School and this is my second year on the High Post. A little bit about me is that I have 1 older brother and 1 younger sister. I also have a Golden Retriever named Chipper who is quite a handful. I have been a member of student council since 5th grade, I’m a member of Link Crew, Global Scholars, Spanish National Honor Society, and I am the boy’s basketball team manager. I am also a school board representative. This position requires me to attend the school board meetings and give a report to the board about all the events happening in the senior high, junior high, and all three elementary schools in the Greater Latrobe School District. Doing this has allowed me to improve my public speaking skills in a way that I can’t in the classroom. Writing for the High Post gives me a chance to explore different areas in the journalism field, get the inside scoop on topics other people wouldn’t usually get a lot of information on, give my opinion on a topic and write about it, and make the voices of people who usually go unheard, heard. I am also enrolled in our broadcast and video production class here at GLSD where I am the President of our morning news show, WCAT-TV. Some of my interests other than writing and broadcast journalism are taking pictures, making people laugh, and politics. I find politics to be very interesting because of the fact that everyone has their own opinion of what they believe is right and wrong. One way that I keep my knowledge in politics and world events alive is attending speeches that political dignitaries given in the surrounding area. Those people have the power to vote and make their voice heard, which is the best part of our country.
