New and improved mornings at LHS

Lewiston High School has a new and improved way of delivering the morning announcements to students — a live-streamed, student-led news broadcast.
Students in ASB are now sharing school announcements on Lewiston High School’s very own YouTube channel, streaming every morning as soon as school starts. Called the Bengal Update, they announce everything from lunch menus to sports schedules and game footage.
“I think it’s an interactive way for students to get the news in the morning,” said Seyi Argundade, treasurer for Lewiston’s ASB. “When the announcements were on the intercom, I felt like kids didn’t really listen to them. With this new system, kids (have) to listen to the announcements.”
Delivering announcements with this system allows an opportunity for students to connect with their peers and school in a unique way. Those interested can visit Lewiston High School’s YouTube page at LHS Bengals and watch all their previous updates starting from the beginning of the 22-23 school year.
The Bengal Update can be found on the LHS Bengals Youtube channel by looking up “LHS Bengals” and finding the live stream for the day. The livestreams are uploaded as the daily announcements are finished. Visit to see the Bengal Update.
