During my four years at Portage High School, I was fortunate enough to receive many great opportunities that formed my experience into one that I will look back at fondly for the rest of my life. Right at the top of that list of opportunities was the chance to get involved with PortageLife.com.
Starting with my sophomore year, I took photos, wrote articles and networked at events at the school and within the community. By the start of my junior year, I was writing our “Lives That Matter Series” spotlighting the most involved and influential people in my school and my community. By the start of my senior year, in addition to being known around the school and community as Mr. PortageLife, I had also received the chance to learn how to manage our event coverage team, edit video, use social media effectively and think opportunistically.
