Junior year was a wild but important ride

It’d be an understatement to say that my junior year was a roller coaster ride. Through an amazing musical, abnormal “play,” exceptional Relay for Life and, most recently, an interesting StuCo election, it’s safe to say that I’ve had a fair share of ups and downs. However, throughout the chaos t...

Wow, I can’t believe my three years of newspaper are already up. It really doesn’t feel that long ago that I was called down to the office my freshman year and told I was going to be on the JagWire staff. Being a part of staff has forever changed my life and the benefits will continue to impact my futu...

Since I joined staff three years ago, I have struggled with getting myself into situations I find to be dangerous, which happens to be similar as a car ride I experienced with editor-in-chief Braden Shaw after a boys soccer game. It’s hard to believe this now, but I honestly did not want to go out...

Ever since I was in the fifth grade, I’ve wanted to be a sports journalist. Granted, back then I didn’t even know what that entailed, but I liked to write and talk about sports, so it sounded good to me. My friend Jimmy felt the same way, so we naturally started up our world-renowned sports blog ...

As I finish up the semester, I am letting out a huge sigh of relief. AP Chemistry, which has been the source of both excitement and stress for the past 9 months, is finally over. I can definitively say that it was the hardest class I’ve ever taken, not necessarily because of the content, but because of ...

When I walk into the World War I museum, I can smell the history. The walls are lined with glass casings and artifacts. Being a history junkie since I was younger, I loved going to museums. This museum by far is the most unique I have ever been to due to it’s spectacular collection of WWI artifacts and...

For the past few years, I’ve frequented the downtown area quite a bit for doctors appointments. I absolutely hated going, which my mom was plenty aware of, so one day after an appointment, she took me to the Filling Station. It quickly became a tradition after every appointment, making me actually...

For as long as I can remember, my grandparents have taken my brother and I to the Union Station during the Christmas season. My parents never went, so it was something just for the four of us. We would see the huge Christmas tree they set up, along with the impressive train display in the main hall....
