Stress is a Mess

“So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need at least 9 hours of sleep for their developing brains, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health as well as the development of skills vital to their future career), religious activities, hobbies, extra-cirriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development and required by many parents), relaxation, and even family time. Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.” - Pinterest  ...

Honoring Our Heroes

Kelsey Byrd, Staff writer

November 15, 2019

In the upper halls of Memorial High School, quizzes were passed out to groaning students, tests were taken with nervous ferocity and lectures were given to a very bored and unresponsive audience. But just downstairs in the library, something magical was taking  place. Around the tables decorated with patriotic napkins, colorful cupcakes and walls adorned with soldier cutouts, a large crowd of people came together and united under one premise- to honour our country’s veterans.    Some were strangers, bonded only by their connection to the military (rather it was their service or a loved one’s), but regardless an aura of familiarity was birthed as the stories of our country’s heroes were shared. “My name is Torrance Reed and I w...

September 24, 2019

Memorial is filled with unalike and compelling clubs that people can meet and talk to others with similar interests. One club at school, the Student Activist Union, offers a space to express feelings and address issues in the political world. I had a chance to talk to the club’s president Ainsley Carter, Memorial’s Black Diamonds’ Captain, about her union:    Q: Give me a small summary about your club. A: The Student Activist Union encourages social activism, self-advocacy, and political involvement in Memorial students, aiming to increase voter regristation and awarenesss of social issues.  Q: Who are the leaders or officers of your club?

El Club Español

September 18, 2019

Memorial is not even a month into its second year and already the campus is buzzing with sport events, performances, clubs and other extracurricular activities. For some, joining clubs is a tedious must-have for decorated college resumes. For others, it’s a way to connect and meet other students who may not have come into your social circle otherwise. I was lucky enough to talk with Taveion Neasman, a sophomore who attends Memorial High School and is a member of the Spanish Club.   (Note: The Spanish club is for all students who attend Memorial and wish to expand upon their knowledge of the Spanish language and cultural differences. It is not required that you take a Spaish class to attend the club.) &...
