“In second place with 155 points, the Juniors!” These eight words filled me with joy as I sprinted out with my peers to hoist the historic trophy over the crowd of storming people. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning opening a present I’ve wanted for years. As senior class president, I con...

Two weeks ago, I got to be a part of Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour. That’s right: VMA Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, Best Choreography and Video of the Year award winner. I was in the presence of greatness and loved every minute of it. The best day of my life was the day I realized that my life is ...

I am living through a historic presidential election. We all know it. The Democrats nominated the first female presidential candidate and even more importantly… Donald Trump. This campaign is--for better or for worse--quite the spectacle. Mr. Trump can’t speak without causing public outrage--...

Often I catch myself wondering about the “whys” in my life. Why did this happen? The drama of high school life (boys, mean girls) pressed down on one of my best friends to the point of collapse, and I had no idea. Why didn't she say something to me? Why did this have to happen to her? Why now? ...

Walking into school this year, the atmosphere just felt… different. As I took my final first step into EHS, the school was exactly the same, but there was a strange new feeling in the air. Everywhere I went there were people calling out to me: friends, teachers, acquaintances--many whose nam...

This is my first column. I am a sophomore on a small but mighty news staff. Being among the youngest writer, I am excited to be able to voice my perspective here because life constantly surprises me whether it be finding an extra dollar in my pocket, the new friend I made in math class, wearing a new o...

I didn’t find myself in high school. I don’t know who I am, but I know who I want to be. I can’t tell you what my style is. I can’t tell you my political views. I couldn’t even tell you how I see my future going. But I know I’ll be okay. I have hope. As a sophomore, I walked ...

So here we are. The end of 12 years in the Rockwood School District. The end of high school; the best four years of my life. The end of the relationships with all the amazing people I’ve met throughout high school. I loved each and every one of you. This marks the end of my youth... But th...

High school is an emotional time. People are going through puberty and everyone's hormones are all screwed up. But I am a person who is not really in touch with my own emotions. I am in a constant state of being over what I interpret as people’s drama. Most days I feel like teenagers over exaggerate e...

If someone were to sit me down right now and ask me how my high school experience was, I would have a few answers. I couldn’t wait to get out. I am NOT ready to leave. How am I already 18?” High school for me consisted of so many crazy, beautiful, sad and happy memories. In bet...

Last week Beyonce released her new album “Lemonade,” and it got me thinking. The whole album is one continuous video with speaking parts and heart-wrenching, artistic visuals of what it really feels like to be cheated on. The viewer is saturated with images like a room filled with water, and Bey...
