In the weekly series, “In Case You Missed It,” WSPN’s news editor Kevin Wang summarizes stories from the past week with links to the corresponding WSPN article.

WSPN’s Kyle Chen profiled Parry Graham, the new assistant superintendent of Wayland Public Schools. Graham most recently worked as principal of Nashoba Regional High School in Bolton.

“I hope that what people will feel from me and the rest of the central office team is continued high levels of support,” Graham said. “That has been the most important thing we do – support people who are in the schools.”

WSPN’s Hailey Robinson interviewed the leaders of four new clubs at WHS: Ultimate Frisbee, Rotary Interact, Sports Analysis and Sports Management.

Robinson and editor Caitlin Newton then delved into the trades of unconventional athletes at WHS. Sophomores Talia Camiel and Jason Haims and juniors Emma Levy and Isabel Mishara compete in a variety of sports unaffiliated with the school, including “Rocket Cheer,” CrossFit, tennis and horseback riding, respectively.

WSPN’s Joyce Wu reviewed Hollywood’s favorite summer breakthrough, “Crazy Rich Asians.” Wu discusses film settings, character development, relative real-world themes and the significance of “Crazy Rich Asians” to the Asian-American community.

“This film shouldn’t be labeled as a good ‘Asian film,’ but rather a good film with an all-Asian cast,” Wu writes.


WSPN’s Max Brande and Charlie Moore gave live commentary for the football team’s victory over Boston Latin through compressed game footage shot by senior Henry Stafford. Key moments include sophomore running back Jaison Tucker’s 81-yard rushing touchdown and senior Michael Lampert’s 55-yard receiving touchdown.
