Forensic students watch instructor Codi Fenwick discuss the resource building, and how to find and choose sections from books for recitement. Book subjects can vary from drama, comedy, and even graphic novels.

The first forensics meeting of the year was held Thursday during seminar and was lead by instructor Codi Fenwick and instructor Erin Deenihan.

The group discussed the possibilities and future of forensics, while also going into their plans for this upcoming season.

Instructor Codi Fenwick and instructor Erin Deenihan oversaw the meeting, with Deenihan only being able to attend in the first part. With them, presidents Amiyah Gonzalez and Tana Herremen.

“It was just a way to give more information about the class for those who are unable to take it,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez also said they went over general stuff for newcomers, addressing things like which tournaments are coming up and which ones you can go to which is based upon how many years you’ve been there.

“We set up a google forum where they can discuss interests and conflicts in their schedule,” Fenwick said. “We also gave them dates of all the events, so they can plan ahead for it.”

Fenwick also said forensic students can submit ideas and thoughts on the google forum if they need help or have a problem.

Deenihan said they talked about selecting and cutting scenes from books and other resources to help them do better.

The presidents reflected on their experience at forensics, and they’re excited for what was to come this year.

Herremen said it was the weirdest thing she’s ever done, comparing it to a bunch of kids getting in a room and talking to themselves.

“Forensics is a place where those who are passionate about speaking publicly and acting can join together,” Gonzalez said. “It’s one of my most cherished experiences.”
