Seniors Alex Feyerherm, Quinn Buffington, Sam Crowley and Bryce Davidson created a website last spring in honor of their fellow classmates, senior Tanner Callis, junior Trinity Callis and alumni Tristan Callis.

The group decided that it was appropriate to create a site dedicated to the trio in order to share their belief on how “amazing the Callis family is”.

The website, CallisClan, has a journalistic style similar to satirical sites like Deadspin and The Onion. 

Senior Aidan Lawson is another influential member to the site.

“I didn’t come up with the idea,” Lawson said. “I just kind of hopped on board, not long after the sites creation.”

Lawson said his role on the website is that of a passionate fan above everything else.

“The triad of Callis is just too much to let go unnoticed by the world,” Lawson said.

The group pays $15 a year to keep the blog up and running.

“The website has already been appraised at $75,” Feyerherm said. “Our investment has grown 400 percent in six months.”

Feyerherm is one of the four administrators for the site.

“The administrators are in charge of publishing articles, moderating comments and designing the site,” Feyerherm said. “Now that we’re past the creation stage, we can rely on a robust rotation of administrators to take turns moderating and performing website upkeep.”

Recently, the group added sophomore Scout Perryman to the team as a cartoonist.

“We’re hoping to expand our viewer base by incorporating new ideas,” Feyerherm said.

Buffington is another administrator to the site.

“Posts are put on the site infrequently but in great detail,” Buffington said. “Comments are checked by moderators for any profane content.”

The group said they have a budding viewer base from Israel.

All three Callis siblings know about the website.

While Tanner doesn’t participate in posting to the site, he is an avid viewer.

“I first thought it was a little weird,” Tanner said. “Then it became a little creepy. But after homecoming, I realized that it’s actually kind of cool to have friends like that, even if the whole thing is a little silly.”

Tanner does not think that the website has gone too far in praising him and his siblings.

La vie est drôle. ‘Life is amusing,’ is it not? Learn to laugh a little,” Tanner said.
