Feather staffers throw a suprise birthday party for adviser, Greg Stobbe, Feb. 22.

Students collaborate to bring a variety of food to celebrate the birthday. Deserts including Krispy Kreme donuts, cake, and drinks, are served. Staffers get to school early to prepare the party before Stobbe arrived.

Stobbe has passionately served as adviser of The Feather for more than 20 years.

We asked Feather staffers what Stobbe means to them. Students appreciate the impact that Stobbe makes in their personal and professional lives.

Editor, Mariana Fikse, ’18, expresses how much work Stobbe does when nobody is watching.

“I really appreciate all of the work Stobbe puts into The Feather behind the scenes. We have all learned so much from him and respect him for all he has done for us. I hope he has a great birthday.”

Writer Logan Lewis, ’20, appreciates the writing skills and confidence Stobbe has taught him.

“To say Mr. Stobbe is an inspiration to all of us is an understatement,” Lewis said. “Every day he pushes us to our limit and helps us propel past it. He teaches us so many things about writing and interviewing. I am now more confident when interviewing people, and my writing skills have greatly improved. I am so grateful to have an advisor like Mr. Stobbe to look up to.” 

Photojournalist, Julia Fikse, ’19, enjoys the push for hard work that Stobbe gives. 

“Stobbe has taught me so much these past two years being in the Feather,” Fikse said. “He pushes me to do my best in all of my work and contunues to help me grow in my writing skills. I always enjoy having him as my adviser in my photojournalism classes.”
