Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

How about:

Penn Robotics Returns from the World Championship!

Loses what...doesn't bring home a ridiculously huge trophy like the cheerleaders when then get 3rd or 4th place. They lost their faith in the local news for certain.

Might I suggest the team write an Op-Ed critiquing the story, correcting any (and all) inaccuracies, and showing what true gracious professionalism means.

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

I commented on the article, but I'll voice my thoughts here as well. This is a terrible representation of the wonderful South Bend community. After a long weekend at Worlds, the last thing you want to do is wake up to an article like that.

Stay positive, Penn! You guys represented the greater South Bend area so well.

(I'll also say that it's a shame that the article was so short. South Bend sent 2 FLL teams, 1 FTC team, and 1 FRC team! That is INCREDIBLE! The work being done by Penn, the Boys and Girls Club, the Ethos Science Center, and GEARS should be showcased in a positive light! Penn has made it to Worlds 18 seasons out of twenty! What an amazing accomplishment. Not to mention, their District Championship Chairmans Award! GEARS has 3 FTC teams, and the 3 ended up being the top teams in the state. The newspaper did the community a disservice by not mentioning these amazing feats.)

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

I read this "article" before coming to this page as it was suggested by Google to me. Honestly I don't understand how a company could even post something like that. Sure you didn't win, but making it to stl is far from a loss. There are well over 4000 teams in FIRST last I heard (probably undershooting it) and you obviously did well to make it there. If I were you I would call the editor and explain this to them. They obviously don't know how to write an article and should be shown what FIRST really is about.

Sounds like a PR media relations team might be on the list for next year. Still waiting on our coverage here in Ypsilanti, MI.
