Dream It, Do It, Believe It, Achieve It
By Ethan Clock, Ethan Graham, Andelynn Lawson, Braylon Taylor
“Dream-it, Do-it” is a program at Clinton MIddle for eight-grade students. They work on video editing to advertise industry around the area.
The students join the program based on their schedules, grades, and interest in this job area. It is a way for the students to learn what they are interested in for later on in life.
Many of the students have already accomplished learning how to film and edit videos through this program run by robotics teacher Mr. Lewis.
Mr. Lewis had stated that his favorite accomplishment this year was looking back at all of the success and work that the students have put into the program.
Many students in “Dream-It, Do-It” have said that their favorite part of the program is simply just hanging out with Mr. Lewis along with learning the deeper meaning of video editing and advertising.
The students are currently working on a video project for SL Tennessee. They will put their video up in competition with the other ACS middle schools this spring.

A column by Marissa Eccles, Jasmine Erick, Ari Herrell, Parker Sanchez
Our teacher of the year at Clinton Middle School is Lindsey Wrinkle.
Ms. Wrinkle is a sixth-grade special-ed teacher and team leader for the special-ed department.
The students here have aided her by pushing her to be a better teacher every day and to help them learn to the best of their abilities.
She has been teaching at Clinton Middle School for 11 years.
Her favorite thing about CMS is the students, she said, adding” “They’re hilarious and brighten my day each day.”
Ms. Wrinkle has helped with Hawks for Christ, credit recovery, school dances, Thanksgiving baskets, sporting events and the Christmas drive.
We are so grateful to have Ms. Wrinkle as a teacher here, and are so proud of her amazing work.
