Broadcaster Press 9 January 28, 2020 www.broadcasteronline.com January 2020 BY ZADYA ABBOTT Happy New Year, Decade, and Life! A new decade comes with new opportunities for exploring new experiences, as well as several nostalgic social media posts. Because this year is the start of the decade, the online community is riveted with, what are called, Ten-Year Challenge posts. Those enticing usages of the First Amendment consists of a picture of the social-media user in 2010 and then now, in 2020. I was scrolling through Instagram one day when I had the idea for this months Pause For Diversity. What was VHS like ten years ago? What was the demographic of Vermillion High School like back when today’s Senior class was nine? To answer that question, I did what every 28 year-old cleaning out their childhood bedroom closet does, I looked at the 2010 yearbook. The following are my takes on Vermillion High School’s 2010 in comparison to its 2020. The title of the yearbook was It’s About Time. That title was intended as a play on how high school is a time for making friends, learning, and discovering oneself. This is definitely still true however Yearbooks now are titled with the year they are made for a cleaner feel. Senior pictures are almost entirely the same; it is all about standing in front of conveniently place brick walls, nature, or barns. Vermillion High School’s Student Newspaper There was a page in 2010’s yearbook that highlighted students that were following their sporting interests outside of school that I found to be particularly intriguing. Dylan Fischbach, VHS 2010 Freshman, worked out with the Track team in a special threewheeled chair so that he could keep in shape for his wheel-chair Basketball team, 2010 Junior, Tony Henderson worked on his drag racing car, 2010 Senior, Paige Myron, was congratulated on achieving her 2nd Degree Black Belt in TaeKwonDo, and 2010 Seniors, Stacie Kjeldon and Megan Bottolfson, both vied for State Swim spots. Those interests even a decade later are still deem, by me, that is, to be yearbook-worthy. Animal Spotlight BY EMILY NAU Finally, Vermillion High School’s 2010 Yearbook featured a section entitled, 2009-10 In Review. This covered everything from the earthquakes in Haiti and Chili, Former President Barack Obama’s winning of the Nobel Peace Prize, and the Senior Editor, Rebecca Moreau’s 18th Birthday to Apple’s release of an IPad with Wi-Fi+3G, Tiger Wood’s public sex scandal apology the deaths of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Actress, Brittany Murphy, and Senator Edward Kennedy. The decade has definitely changed Vermillion High School whether it is seen in the amount of high-waisted skinny jeans worn now compared to the 2010s classic low-rise boot-cut or in the omniscient eyes of tenured teachers. To loosely quote High School Musical, once a Tanager, always a Tanager.
