So this is it, after four years of high school I’m moving on to my next step in life. Looking back it doesn’t feel like four years, more like a couple of months with some short breaks in the middle filled with amazing friends. It’s been an adventure, especially since I moved halfway across the coun...

This is my senior farewell. I met Mr. Walter during my sophomore year in his Photo Imaging class. I learned a lot in that class, especially how to use a camera a skill I didn’t know I’d be grateful for knowing. This year my senior year I picked up photography and since my skills were rusty I figured...

I’ve always known Junction City as home. The feeling of nostalgia hits every time I pass Lincoln Elementary, just knowing that this will be my final full year in Junction City. It hits hard. Being born in Junction has instilled a large sense of pride in me for my city, peers, and school among other...

Deciding what message I want to leave the students of Junction City High School with was not an easy task, there are so many things I would like to say, and so many thank yous that need to be voiced before I leave.

1,367 days. 1,367 days ago, I was standing in my living room while my mother hugged me goodbye and walked down to the Freshman Success Academy for the very first time- this marked the beginning of my high school career. It feels like this was just yesterday and the cliché “time goes by in the blink...

During my High school career, I learned a lot from my teachers, friends, and most importantly my family. There were plenty of times where I wanted to give up or joked about how it would be easier to drop out. But I'm glad the people closest to me pushed me to succeed and try new things and to truly never...

I walked through the doors of the KCI airport and immediately felt waves of fear wash over me as tears began to well in my eyes. I searched the entrance frantically, looking for someone who knew what they were doing, but this came to no avail as there are very few people wandering around airports at...

In order to save our planet from climate change, we need a strong plan that will be efficient and impactful, yet still realistic and achievable.

After living in Kansas for three years, I’m finally leaving. Even though I’m only moving next door to an equally underwhelming state, I’m excited to have a fresh start in Missouri. I moved from Louisiana to Kansas halfway through 8th grade and began at Fort Riley Middle School. I remember how...
