Denville Student Spotlight: Stephanie Braunlich


DENVILLE, NJ-- This week's Denville Student Spotlight goes to Stephanie Braunlich, Morris Knolls Class of 2016.

Stephanie Braunlich is all about media. Braunlich can always be found in the TV Production studio or in the halls of Morris Knolls High School filming different scenes for the Golden Eagles morning news broadcast. In addition to her work within the TV Production area at Knolls, Braunlich is also all about school spirit as she takes her place on the Knolls sideline as a Varsity Cheerleader.

Braunlich is most recognized around Morris Knolls though as the girl who helped bring Chris Herren to Knolls. Back in December, Braunlich helped shoot and design an entire video dedicated to the work that Project Purple does. The grand prize winning school won a trip from Herren to speak about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

"I shot and edited the entire film in two days. I didn't move from my spot in the production lab for twelve hours both those days," Braunlich said.

In the end, Braunlich and the teacher advisors to Teen Leadership Council were shocked when they had found out that Morris Knolls was the grand prize winner.

"I ran down the hallway and into the guidance office screaming. Everyone thought someone died or somebody was pregnant!" Braunlich laughed.

In addition to her work at Knolls, Braunlich is active in her church as well. She helps on mission trips to buil homes for people who are less fortunate. Her cheerleader spirit shines both on and off the mat.

Next fall, Braunlich will be headed to Montclair State University to study TV Production. She hopes to one day be an anchor or a field reporter who helps break the biggest stories. 

"If it wasn't for Mr. Luttenberger and his passion for TV Production, I don't think I'd be where I am. His passion transfers through his teaching onto his students,"
