Kenneth Forbeck
Kenneth Forbeck is a sixteen-year-old Junior at Craig High School.

Since starting high school in 2016, he has served as both a reporter and editor for the Craig Criterion.
He got into newspaper because he was interested in journalism, but found much more.
With the newspaper, he became a photographer, activist, and a truth-seeker.
“With the Criterion, each student can have a voice, be recognized, and share something they’re passionate about with the rest of the school. My hope is that students realize the importance of journalism, separating rumor from fact, and giving attention to the happenings or issues in our school.”
When he’s not writing, he works hard in multiple AP and honors classes.
And can be found being an activist at rallies, marches, and through his daily actions.
Even though he also advocates strongly for equality and gun control reform, he focuses himself primarily on environmental issues and education.

He does that by volunteering at Nature at the Confluence in South Beloit, and the Welty Environmental Center in Beloit, WI, where he is on the Board of Directors.
He also recently spent the 2018 spring semester in the Northwoods at Conserve School, an environmental and conservation based semester school in Land O’ Lakes, WI.

He claims that there he found truth in the John Muir quote “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
During his four months there he grew his passion for the natural world through stewardship, camping, quinzee building, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, and countless other activities.
He believes that the world can be a better place and fights for it with activism, stewardship of our lands, and through journalism.

“I hope that I can leave a positive impact wherever I go. Whether it is as simple as not using plastic to helping start conversations that can progress our community,” he commented.
