Student journalist gleans lessons from peers as well as experts at conference

Mackenzie George, Editor in Chief

Part of me still wonders whether the 2017 Al Neuharth Free Spirit and Journalism Conference was some kind of social experiment. Throw a kid from every state, plus one from D.C., into a room and see what happens. If I’d been in on it, I would have predicted cliques would form and competition would ensu...

Complacency

Mackenzie George, Editor in Chief

September 15, 2017


Filed under Opinions

I thought I knew what my biggest fear was. I had it all lined out in a concrete answer, the way some people might describe their terror of the dark. My spiel went something like this: “I fear complacency. My biggest fear is that one day, people will become desensitized to all these awful things happe...

The feeling of getting closer to summer break is always something special to me. The excitement of knowing that I have the whole summer in front of me without worrying about school is to me, amazing.

My parents have always taught me that treating others with respect is one of the most important things you can do.

They don’t call it a “special election” for nothing.

It’s not just the timing that makes this election interesting. The two main party candidates c...

EDITORIAL: Meaningful schedules aren’t crammed with opens

May 11, 2017


Filed under Opinions

For underclassmen, scheduling is over and done. Electives have been selected, opens have been placed as strategically as possible.

Do you know what really grinds my gears? Losing my microwave, of course. I remember wanting to eat something, but when I got my food ready to warm up I realized that I didn’t have a microwave anymore because my grandparents broke it. I was absolutely heartbroken.

January 3, 2017


Filed under Opinions

There are two sides to the issue of cell phones in class and we are against it completely. Cellphones are both a distraction and anger inducing to teachers. Some people would say that cell phones are helpful and can be used to help a class learn more. Well we would say that is wrong. We have heard many...

Cell phones are a distraction in the classroom

Nancy Beston and Grace Carr, Intro to Journalism

January 3, 2017


Filed under Opinions

The only distractions classrooms used to consist of were people staring out of windows, passing notes, and throwing spit wads.
