As I sit at my desk for the last time to write one final piece for the EHS-hub, my mind is content. I’ve done everything that I’ve set out to do. After taking over EHS-hub Broadcast News at the end of my sophomore year, I put a sign on the wall next to the door of room 704 stating “EHS-hub Go...

High school cannot be described in just a few short words. These past four years have been a roller coaster of emotions filled with some of the best memories. I stepped into EHS scared as could be. Scared that I would get lost in the halls and be late to my classes. Scared that I wouldn’t...

In the sky, God painted a picture using the most magnificent, vibrant colors. Countless shades of orange, red, yellow and blue opened up above like the gates of heaven welcoming me home.

I woke up the day after the recent election in a fantastic mood, April 5. After my alarm woke me up at 6:30 a.m. for school, I took a long hot shower and got dressed in khakis and a collared shirt. I ran upstairs to meet my mom for breakfast where we sat together, ate Apple Jacks and watched News Ch...

If you would’ve asked me if I was ready for college six months ago, I would’ve answered, “No.” Not at all. Not in a long shot.

As the responsibility-free hours of spring break fade from (if we are lucky) our rested minds, I am reflecting on the importance of getting out: out of my head, out of my house, out of my zip code. Getting up off the couch is a simple act that can be so hard to execute. Gravity wins all-too-ofte...

I did as I normally do every other week. I sat down at the desk in the corner of my room in the pitch black except for a lamp illuminating the area directly around my laptop. There were papers and letters and water bottles scattered on the ground and deadlines creeping toward me. I was on empty...

Barack Obama was the first president I remember. I know when I was born Bill Clinton was in office. But after my eighth birthday, it is President Barack Obama’s election I remember. My parents and I were sitting on my living room floor of my old house. I kept asking my parents questions about why ...
