Welcome to The Nest, a student owned and operated blog that covers events going on in the Elgin area. My name is Ashton Attig. I’m a student in Elgin High School’s 7th hour digital broadcast and one of the editors of The Nest. I will mainly be editing the stories uploaded by my fellow classmates, but I’ll occasionally write a story of my own. I’m heavily involved in student government organizations such as Student Council and Key Club. I joined digital broadcast to ease myself into the world of news and journalism. I hope to one day travel and write stories over current events in countries across the world, so I figured that this class is a good first stepping stone. I hope you’ll take the time to read the articles written by not only me, but also my peers.
