Hailey Carmichael '23

Editor in Chief

     Hi! My name is Hailey Carmichael and I’m so excited to be your 2022-2023 RamPage Editor-In-Chief! Currently, I am a senior here at Riverview High School. Writing is one of my passions, so I’m very excited to be working on the school newspaper. This will be my fourth year as part of the RamPage! I’m also involved in Future Business Leaders of America (FLBA). This will be my fourth year in this brilliant club as part of the Executive Board. My goal this year is to help publish many entertaining and informative stories for you to read on our online website. Thank you for taking time to get to know your writers! 

    Addison Ruscoe was born and raised in the always warm and sunny Sarasota, Florida. Addison, a 16 year old high school athlete, is one of the top contributors for this paper. As a sports enthusiast, you can catch Addison watching nearly any sporting event, catching up on the most recent sports stats, and recording videos for his paid sports youtube channel during his down time.

Abbie Martin '23

Staff Writer

    Hi, friends! I am Abbie Martin, and it is such a joy to be a part of the RamPage! I have enjoyed every single minute of my three years in Journalism. Writing for the newspaper has allowed me to feel more a part of our school. Doing things for others that put a smile on their face motivates me and writing about topics that I know you will enjoy allows me to do just that. Some things about me: After high school, I plan to attend either FSU, UF, or TCC and major in Obstetric Sonography. Outside of the classroom I have a passion for photography, dogs, and the beach! Working with the RamPage has taught me how to better connect with peers, developed my writing skills and style, and allows me to show off my school pride. Being a part of this passionate community has given me a new purpose and I am excited for the year to come!

Emma Baltzersen '24

Staff Writer

I am Emma Baltzersen, a junior this year and one of the staff writers for the 2022-2023 RamPage.  One of my favorite classes is History. I enjoy the stories about the past and how the past transformed the world into what we know today. I also enjoy my English classes because I find writing fun and an easy way to pass time.  Outside of my classes I participate in Riverview High School softball. I also travel in and out of the State of Florida with another team, "Texas Glory," which plays competitive tournaments that prepare participants skills for college softball, and exposures them to college coaches. I have played softball since I was very young. If I am not playing softball, I am watching softball. This summer, I enjoyed watching the College World Series and rooting on the different schools.  Because I can throw very hard from very far, my primary position is in the outfield. In my free time I like to watch movies with friends and family. 

     My name is Annabelle Littlejohn and I’m a sophomore at Riverview. This is my second year taking journalism and I am enjoying it very much. Some things I like to do are play soccer and go to the gym. I have an older sister who I am very close with, and I hope to live near her in the future. I do have a couple more years to decide what I want to do in college but, I hope to attend the university of Florida state and study psychology. I love to read and write so this class is perfect for me and I’m looking forward to the upcoming years in journalism.

     Hi Rams! I am Trista Smith ‘24. This is my second-year writing for the RamPage and this year I am a News Writer. Last year I spent a lot of my time writing on sports as well as doing many features. I am a huge fan of hockey; I have spent a lot of time in Canada and have always loved hockey and watching the Tampa Bay Lightning. Most of my time is spent with my family, on the boat or jet ski, or just chilling by the pool in the beautiful Florida weather. I also spend a lot of my time with my friends, going out to dinner, or just chilling with them. I am so excited to write for the students and teachers here at Riverview. Have an amazing year and Go Rams!

Let's make this a wonderfully educational year Rams!
