HURRICANES’ MORNING NEWS: Those key updates are delivered by senior Lorenz Small.

There’s new voice behind the intercom during morning announcements at Inlet Grove. The voice belongs to Lorenz Small, a senior in the Pre-Engineering Academy.

Lorenz was chosen by school administration to present the morning announcements for the 2015-16 school year because he’s well known for public speaking. He has hosted school pep rallies in his years at Inlet Grove, for example.

“He’s able to project his voice very well,” said Mrs. Aubert, who works in the main office. “He’s doing an amazing job.”

Lorenz says doing the morning announcements makes him feel informative, because he is able to broadcast important information that benefits the students and staff.

“Every time I walk around school, students ask me how to participate in the morning announcements, or other times they ask for clarifications,” he said. “Teachers congratulate me as well.”

“He’s been doing an outstanding job at giving us updates,” said Nailah McKoy, a senior in the Commercial Arts Academy.
