High Arrow Staff Spotlight: Elia Dietz


Elia Dietz is a freshman at Indiana High School and a first-year reporter for The High Arrow. She joined newspaper journalism with the intent to write entertaining yet instructive articles for IHS students and staff to get important information. So far, she has done just that.

As a High Arrow reporter, Elia has written some informative and engaging articles. Her first was titled, Exciting changes bring new energy to Art classes, where she explains information regarding the art classes provided at IHS. She is currently working on a piece regarding Athena club, which she is a member of. Elia hopes to write about many more topics in the future.

Other than the newspaper, Elia is involved in numerous things here at IHS. Along with being a member of the Athena Club, she is a member of the French Club, since she takes French as one of her electives. She is also on the lacrosse team. She has been playing lacrosse since she was in fifth grade.

Outside of school, she enjoys a variety of other activities in her free time. “If I didn’t have to sleep I would probably do homework or other activities that I usually don’t have time for in my regular day,” she expresses. With one of her priorities being academics, she also prioritizes dance. She is a dancer at Sue Hewitt Dance Studio and has been dancing there for about 12 years.

One of Elia’s further interests is TV shows. “Some shows I’m into are The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Community,” she states. She also has an interest in animals. She has three pets, a cat named Theo and two dogs. In addition to dancing and playing lacrosse, she has many other skills. “A kind of job I think I’d be good at is working in food service,” she claims. 

As a first-year writer for The High Arrow, Elia has already proved her spot on the staff by writing enlightening and appealing articles. She enjoys writing articles for The High Arrow and plans on writing more in the future.
