For senior Madison Shumaker, hearing about the school closing until mid-April did more than put school and activities on hold. As new announcements come every day from Governor Whitmer, her entire varsity softball season is up in the air, and for the time being the rest of the school year and senior a...

Since this is my last hoorah, I feel the need to take a different approach to my senior column. If you know me, this should come as no surprise. During my time at GHHS, I’ve realized my passion for fighting for the underdogs and expressing the struggles of those without an outlet to do so. I woul...

Throughout elementary school, it was hard to find something that I was good at. I tried piano only to find that I had no sense of rhythm. I then was put into gymnastics and ballet, however, that did not last long because I’m about as graceful as a baby giraffe. Nothing seemed to click for me, until ...

Four years ago, in May of 2013, I was finishing up my time at Dr. Augustine Ramirez Intermediate School in Eastvale, California. As far as I knew then, my freshman year would start that August at Eleanor Roosevelt High School, which was close enough to my house that I would bike to school everyday (even ...

Let me preface this by stating a true fact: I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. I mean generally, as I go to school and maneuver through my life. I walk with my head held high and pretend that I have some semblance of an idea, but in all honesty, I don’t. I feel like an acrobat about to walk ...

“Senior year, it goes by so fast” I have been sarcastically saying since the last day of junior year. But it is so true. That day seems like yesterday and before we know it graduation will be tomorrow. If you’re like me, you had some close friends leave this summer, to start their next chap...

"Just wait until you're a senior," they said. "You can take easy classes and blow off your last year" they said. I'm sitting here a week before Labor Day practically up to my knees in AP assignments, college applications, ACT prep, work, and last minute to-dos. Needless to say, I'm waiting for t...

An open letter

Taylor Fase, Senior staff writer

September 8, 2015

Dear freshmen, It's your first day of high school, how exciting! Not to mention nerve wracking. The movie industry has implanted a false image into your minds of stolen lunch money and "nerds" getting shoved in lockers by jocks. But a true upperclassman is here to assure you that neither of those things a...
