Katelyn Schreckenghaust, Senior Writer

April 23, 2020

Savannah,   I’ll forever be grateful to Mr. Shepler for placing us next to each other for our assigned seats back in sixth grade. We always joke that he’s the reason we’re best friends now because that’s when we started talking and becoming friends. That began our friendship, and w...

Mr. Quick: My Impact Teacher

Samuel P Miller, Senior Writer

April 16, 2020

I would not categorize myself as a “strong” guy. When teachers asked for help moving heavy objects, I remained seated. I’d like to say Mr. Quick molded me into the mountain of a man I am today, but I probably will pass out before I end this sentence. I was under the tutelage of Quick for two y...

Sitting in bed and laptop out, you’re silently freaking out about how bad you procrastinated. Imagining all the classes you have to hastily finish homework for and study for the numerous tests due to the end of the nine weeks is almost unbearable. What does one do when stressed out and procrastinatin...

Pulling off the Best Prank Yet!

Pulling off the Best Prank Yet!

McKayla Thompson, Senior Writer

March 4, 2020

Imagine you and your fellow teammates are staying at the school overnight... all of a sudden the police sirens sound and the police charge into your school yelling. This may seem unrealistic but welcome to my Saturday night.  This Saturday the cheerleaders had their annual sleepover at the high schoo...

February 20, 2020

I’m putting a brave face on but inside my guts feel twisted and my heart is about to jump out of my chest. What is stressing me out might seem silly to others but is a worrisome matter for me: I procrastinated and had to find a dress last minute. The only matter I cared about at that moment was findin...

Extinct: Small Town Pride

Samuel P Miller, Senior Writer

January 28, 2020

An epidemic in our school and our generation is occurring before our eyes. The mentality that we are above what we once conceived normal is destroying the communities we cherish.

Remember the Good Ol’ Days?

Remember the Good Ol' Days?

Bella Panmei, Junior Writer

January 23, 2020

The alarm goes off at 6 a.m. I, a drowsy, little second grader, optimistically ran to the closest window in hopes of snow; the ground danced with snow flurries being harshly blown by violent winds. My wish became a reality. Bianca, my little sister, awoke to me jumping on her bed and dragging her to ...
