Megan Tatham speaks in chapel

IMG_7950Alexis Kalugin | The Feather Online Archive

After battling and overcoming addition, FC alumna, Megan Tatham, returned to speak in chapel, March 26.

FC alumna, Megan Tatham, now 29 years old returned to speak in chapel, March 26.

Tatham was raised in Peoples Church and came to FC in fifth grade. Through out middle school and high school she switched between FCS and public. She went from having fun on Fridays with one group of friends and then going to church on Sunday to with a different group. Tatham was using meth so much that it was the only thing she thought of. She wanted to believe in Jesus, it just never clicked.

At the beginning of senior year of HS she had to go to rehab in Arizona for three months. Church to her was an obligation. Tatham found herself consumed with taking pain pills. Later she became pregnant from her ex husband. After having her baby boy, she soon then broke her tail bone and fell back into taking pain pills. It lasted for 7 years and then she started shooting up heroin.

Tatham then got a fellony DUI and went to jail. Heroin had deteriorated her body; She went through 7 different rehabs. Tatham wanted to stop but was unable to; she continued hopping from one drug to another.

Through her addiction, Tatham had become completely broken. She started to hallucinate because she was so far into drugs.

Tatham prayed to God to just fix her. God’s grace is what made her better. Trough Teen Challenge she came to know God. Now she feels free, she isn’t bound to drugs anymore, through God, she is free. The first step to stop or heal anything is Jesus. He will take you all you have to do is come to Him.

Feather enjoys wonderland, CSPA Gold Crown

ColumbiaGoldWInners2015WebRyan King, Photographer

The Feather editors accepted a Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Gold Crown–The Feather’s 5th since 2009.

After anxiously waiting to hear the magical phrase “The Feather Online Gold Crown” to ring out through the packed auditorium inside of Columbia University’s Lerner Hall, staffers thirst for excellence was finally quenched, March 20. The Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s Digital Gold Crown is the highest honor that the CSPA bestows upon any scholastic publication.

This is the third consecutive CSPA Gold Crown and seventh time since 2008 that The Feather has earned a Crown from CSPA. Over 2,690 students attended the convention in New York City, representing 299 schools within 34 states. Some schools even represented neighboring nations, such as Mexico and Canada.

Even though the current Feather website was good enough to win a Gold Crown this year, change is coming. Publications adviser Greg Stobbe and The Feather staff have come together to support a new modern design that will be unveiled before next school year. Possibly even before the end of June.

The Feather website will be updated on a WordPress style site, in hopes of making the paper more competitive at the national level. This is the second year that the paper has not qualified for an NSPA Pacemaker, in part due to the outdated site and lack of digital media. The new design will provide a more streamlined access to school news and innovative media for the FC community. However, this is the fifth time the Feather has won a Gold Crown since its first in 2009.

The 2014-2015 run for The Feather is coming to an end, and along with it the end of many journalism careers. Students that have made the paper stronger by using their skills of interviewing, podcasting, writing articles or making videos will be out in the real world. Their skills will be missed by The Feather and new editors are beginning to learn what will be needed to produce a successful publication.

FC hits NY: Day 5 (SLIDESHOW)

Editors1Viviana Hinojosa | The Feather Online Archive

Feather editors Ryan King, Chloe Mueller, Rees Roggenstein and Sara Peterson bask in the glow of a CSPA Digital Gold Crown while at Columbia University, March 20.

Since arriving in New York, the staff have awaited this moment with nausea. Hoping that they could once again grab the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Digital Gold Crown at the 91st annual convention and continue the winning streak. The team began the day with hope in their eyes.

Just like every other day, the team straggled into the lobby where the students met and then left to their various destination. Today their trip to Columbia University and find out their fate. Editors-in-Chiefs Sara Peterson and Chloe Mueller led a class early in the morning, while the rest of team like previous days attended the other various lectures by prominent figures within the journalistic society.

After the first class, the team decided to rest and work on the ever needy Feather. Students took this opportunity to rest in the lounges around the college. Finally the moment arrived, the editors filed into the auditorium where their fate rested.

Because of the over 2,600 students and 299 schools in attendance, the names of the winners were rattled off in an alphabetical order. The team waited with faces tense and eyes glued to the screen, their time came and went, the Feather had not been called, all the editors turned in shock and confusion.

However, God has a since of humor known only to himself. The association misplaced The Feather in the line-up, and ten minutes later were called to the front of the auditorium.

The team headed outside to find snow piling upon itself, increasing the joy of their seven-month accomplishment. The entirely new team had pulled it off; they won a Gold Crown, proving that anybody with a heart can make it to the top. After taking numerous photos out in the snow of this terrific event for the school and the program, the team headed back for some rest.

After making it back to the hotel, students split off and took a rest in preparation for a celebratory dinner, all fees paid for. Joyful and excited, the team rested and headed off to dinner. The last day touring New York was over and their time to leave had come. For a final time, students will once again rise early, but this time to head back home.

DSC_7293Ryan King, Photographer

With two days of touring behind them, Feather editors and adviser Greg Stobbe pose in from of the Freedom Tower in NYC before they visit the 9-11 Memorial Museum, March 19.

With two full days in New York under their belts, the editors prepared themselves for their third full day in the city. One more day and the team will spend the rest of the week at Columbia University for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s 91st convention.

Warm clothes were strongly suggested and the group departed from the hotel at 9:30 a.m to take the subway as FC hits NY and visit the 9/11 Memorial.

The 9-11 Memorial has been in the stages of construction since 2007 and is still being added to. The highlight of the site was the museum dedicated to honoring those who lost their lives and their loved ones.

After the memorial, the editors made their way down Wall Street and popped in to the Trinity Church. Following the cathedral the group made their way to Battery Park where they watched street dancers perform and viewed the Statue of Liberty from afar.

From there, the girls made their way back to Times Square to shop freely and the boys took a trip to Grand Central Station before returning back to Times Square to shop.

The group met up at 7:45 p.m. to make their way to the 8 p.m. Broadway showing of An American in Paris and ate a late dinner at TGI Fridays.

First timer in New York City, Trevor Beal, shares his impressions of the city along with his favorite aspects of the trip.

“This is my first time ever being in NYC,” Beal said, “I have been to other big cities before but none compare to NYC, Grand Central Station and Wall Street have been my favorite parts of the trip so far, along with the Phantom of the Opera play and 911 Memorial Museum.”

Chloe Mueller, Editor-in-Chief, says she will enjoy giving a session at the 91st CSPA Journalism Convention at Columbia University.

“This year gave me a new look on the trip because we are teaching sessions at Columbia University,” Mueller said. “But the sightseeing is still fun. I loved the 9/11 Memorial.”

The blood will go to the Central California Blood Center, then will be distributed to hospitals around the Fresno area.
