Retiring Thompson’s Jersey
I would like to write a story on Klay Thompson’s jersey retirement. I have an Interview with him, as well as a surplus of non-human sources. I plan to ask a fellow WSU student who attended the game what they liked or to share their experience at the event.
The importance of his retirement is something to note. He is only one of two basketball players from Washington State University to have his number retired to the scaffolding. He may questionably be the most decorated athlete to come out of WSU, not only in basketball, but overall. He has won three NBA Championships and been crowned the three point shooting champion in 2016. I the information and significance to this school would make for a good story
Follow Up of Samuel Martinez’s Death regarding Greek Row
It has been around five months since the tragedy resulting in the death of Samuel Martinez occurred. Almost instantly after the incident occurred Greek Row implemented a self-imposed probation that would shut down all parties on Greek Row, which would carry through winter break and into the start of Spring semester.
The probation has been lifted and new rules and regulations have been put into action. But, what are these new rules? How will they help? Will these efforts be enough to stop another drinking related death?
For this story I have an interview with The WSU IFC president, a fellow member of Samuel’s former house ATO and lastly the Risk chair of KD, Idaho. I will use these sources to get a better understanding of what happened, how it is being addressed and to see what Greek Rows in close proximity are doing to prevent death in their own Greek Community.
My great grandma, along with my three sets of aunts and one set of grandparents live in the same community. We are all originally from Martinez, Ca. I don’t know what is more interesting my great grandma’s life and how she came to own the community we all live in or the fact that almost my entire family lives in the same community, especially during this Covid-19 lock down.
This next paper/assignment we have is a profile, so I have been leaning more towards the side of just focusing on my great grandma. However, I focus on the community I could interview practically my entire family and how they all came to the conclusion of leaving next door to their sisters, grandparents etc.
I will probably source the class on Friday because I really don’t know what direction to take this. I would like to write a story that doesn’t involve or even mention the Coronavirus, but my family’s living situation is hilarious for times like this.
