Avon's State Champion News Anchor

Avon's State Champion News Anchor

Avon High School student Maryam Beg is used to being around campus either in front of the camera reporting on breaking news stories or behind the desk anchoring the Oriole Report.

This week, Maryam took a turn on stage to accept her award as the Indiana Association of School Broadcasters top student TV anchor in the state of Indiana.

"Maryam was a top six finalist on the basis of her pre-recorded submissions and competed in person, live today," says AHS Broadcasting Teacher Lauren Tauer. "She took first place out of more than 40 schools and 80 submissions. This is one of their most entered and competitive categories."

Broadcast students Sophie Schick and Jaidyn Bills took home two honorable mentions for TV Copyright (script writing).

To see Maryam and her fellow reporters at work, check out the Oriole Report on YouTube.
