After the announcement of a snow day on Monday, Nov. 26, like most students I made plans with a friend. Later in our day off, she said that she had to go home because she had basketball practice at the school. The fact that school was canceled, yet athletic practices weren’t, seemed to confirm an opinion I ...

I came to the realization as I was sitting in the commons of the University of Kansas Student Union. I had posted a photo of my friends and I at the Kansas Scholastic Press Association’s state contest on my Snapchat story, and as people swiped up to ask what we were there for, it finally clicked: ...

After witnessing many seniors vote in this year’s midterm elections, I began to think about when you truly become an adult. Legally, one is an adult when they turn 18, but due to other laws and restrictions, that is not really the case. While I think the age to become an adult should not be 18, I do...

A few weeks ago, after putting the final touches on the foreign exchange page for the second issue of the JagWire, I decided to take a break and scroll through Facebook. While I was scrolling through my feed, I noticed that a peculiar ad had popped up. It advertised enrollment in a high school foreign exchan...

During my time in high school, I have seen a split between the student population. Some students become the book-loving, “nerds” that appear to know every fact in the world, while others become the “popular” kids who tend to travel with a group of friends. It may appear now that the popular kids are ...

The parlor game—a game that, somewhere along the way, my crazy family invented or picked up. An individual has a minute to describe a person, whether they be a friend or family member, a celebrity or a fictional character, to their teammates in hopes of them guessing correctly. Because any name is ...

Nearly every time I glance at my surroundings – whether I’m in the living room with my family, sitting in a car full of people, or in a classroom full of students before class starts — the majority of people are staring down at their cell phones. Although I’ll admit, I’m usually one of tho...

Filed under Current Events, OPINION

When looking at clubs, organizations and student body within our school, you may see many female role models but when looking within the government, there are very few examples of woman dominance. There is a lack  of women in government due to society’s prejudice that government and politics are mas...
