If high school students were asked what they were doing after high school, for many, his would cause a lot of stress as they try to come up with an answer. That is because everything sounds like it leads to college. People have other options, and everyone has some idea of what they would like to do,...

Growing up as a racial minority, I had never seen a lot of representation of Mexicans in the media. There was only a handful of women and men that I could relate to on a cultural level that were shown on television and magazines. However, things have been changing for the better in 2018. Though they...

  I was walking my dog recently and saw some guys fishing in a pond, right next to the “No Fishing” sign. Soon after, I was at a local forest preserve with my kids who saw the “Parents – Please Don’t Allow Your Children to Climb on this Rock” sign, right next to a bunch of kids climbing...

In my four years of high school, I learned that everyone has many types of friends: those you meet in activities, those who only talk to you in school, and those who actually hang out with you. From the start of my freshman year to the end of my senior year, I definitely have less of each type...

Woah, four years with my friends from kindergarten to middle school and now some are fading away to go to college. Who knows if I will ever see them again, but hey, that’s life. School has taught me a lot education- wise and friend-wise. Friend-wise is because toward the end of high school, you realize...

I’ve always enjoyed writing. I used to write stories when I was a kid, proclaiming I was going to be a famous author. I quit writing during high school. I felt I wasn’t very good at it, only ever bothering to type when I was forced to do an English essay. When I started journalism in my junior year,...

As prom and finals start getting closer, I have come to realize that graduation is too. For the past four years, I have been a part of the Knight family. I wouldn't have done anything different, because that way I would've never learned from those mistakes and corrected them. I want to thank most...

Joining journalism in the last semester of my senior year, I was very worried. I was joining a full-year class without the full-year experience. I assumed everyone would already have picked seats, made friends, and learned how to write without me. However, when I walked into class one the first...

Throughout high school, I have learned many things. I have learned that it is important to be a good person because you never know what someone is going through. Grades actually do matter. No matter how cute you think that one boy is, he more than likely will do you wrong, and coffee is the only...

Four years ago, I walked into journalism class and I knew no one. Now this wasn’t a surprise to me because I came from a private school with one other person I had known from day one. I would have to make new friends. Little did I know I would be walking into a class that changes my life as...
