Six Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) high school students — three seniors, three juniors — will deliver the news this year as anchors for NewsBreak, a bi-weekly show highlighting students, staff and events in the school system. Auditions were held over the summer with the
the following students selected to serve as anchors for the 2022-23 school year.

- Joshua Pelzer, junior, Westlake.
- Kameryn Robinson, junior, Westlake.
- Aaron Sellow, senior, North Point High School.

Good is a member of Lackey’s theater program, math team, Key Club, National Honor Society and a capella singing group. She is also a member of 4-H. Good joined NewsBreak because she thinks communication is an important skill. She plans on becoming a therapist and wants to help teenagers with their mental health.
Pelzer is known for his performances in the Westlake’s theater program. He has an interest in working in entertainment as either a director, visual effects artist or combination of both. Pelzer joined NewsBreak due to his love of performing and likes to be in front of a camera, whether he is entertaining or informing an audience.
Robinson is a member of the Westlake field hockey team, National Honor Society and drama program. She auditioned for an anchor spot due to her interest in journalism and wants to pursue a career in the field.

His career aspirations are in the medical field, but he has a fondness for the way journalists speak.
