The ‘Sweet Seat’ student interviews

Mr. Stetz’s Sweet Seat (Hannah Fink)

GNA CAMPUS – The ‘Sweet Seat’ student interviews contain six opinionated questions that were asked to a few students around our school. These questions were about the Candy Shoppe that everyone knows and loves. The set of questions asked attempts to gauge students’ attitudes towards The Candy Shoppe and its offerings. The interviews also gave students the opportunity to present suggestions for expansion.

The ‘Sweet Seat’ is associated with The Candy Shoppe, run by Mr. Stetz, and has the support of the school board, superintendent, and Ms. Scibek. These interviews were recorded on October 14, 2022.

What would you say is the most popular item?

“While working The Candy Shoppe, helping distribute money back and forth, giving change, stuff like that, I do see the Bear Claws go a lot.”

When you think about The Candy Shoppe, what comes to your mind?

“Positiveness, Mr. Stetz gives back a lot, he’s actually donating a banner to the football team for us to run out to as a surprise for the Hanover game. Among other things, he used to donate to the softball team and he probably still does. I’d say The Candy Shoppe is a really positive thing.”
