This week, Barstow had an alumni visit the school and speak to students about her post-graduate experiences.
Alumna Rachel Ripp '15 came back to Barstow to speak with BTVN and yearbook students about her degree in broadcasting from Pepperdine University and her upcoming research and anchoring position at 9 West News in Texas. The students asked many questions about her college experience and how BTVN prepared her for college and her career. She noted that BTVN not only curated her passion for broadcasting but enabled her to be prepared to speak publicly, be on air, research and create stories and persevering through difficult times. Barstow looks forward to watching Rachel excel in her field.
