The World Stands Still

April 6, 2020

The World Stood Still   Around January, a mysterious new respiratory illness began to spread rapidly throughout China. At first, through its ambiguity, little was known about it other than it mirrored symptoms of pneumonia and was suspected to have originated from one of Wuhan´s wet markets, a birthplace of the previous SARS epidemic. In an effort to quell the growing inevitability of spread, the city of Wuhan was closed in hope that disease would not escape China's borders. Then in ...

Tanvi Nair- Quarantined at Home March 23 One of my favorite things about online school is that you have more time to do activities you like after finishing assignments in the morning. Today my sister and I decided to bake a chocolate cake from scratch(which we've never done before) along with some homemade buttercream frosting! I also like to do other activities such as watching Netflix or go on my phone and chat with my friends because we’re isolated. I like that ...

March 20, 2020

As of March 20th, there are 136 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in North Texas. 51 cases have been found in Dallas and a combined 9 cases have been found in Collin and Denton county of Frisco. Last week students of Memorial High School were enjoying their Spring Break before the floods of emails from teachers and the principal gave the announcement that school would be closing. Parents who can, have been asked to work from home. During this week, Frisco has become a ghost town. Schools, places of work, and stores have been closed to prevent the spread of the contagious coronavirus. Driving down Preston on a Monday around 5 o’clock means traffic. Driving to the Stonebriar mall on a Saturday usually means no parki...

In an effort to quell the growing inevitability of spread, the city of Wuhan was closed in hope that disease would not escape China's borders. Then in the end of January, a few cases popped up outside China, such as in Japan, Thailand and the United States. Come February, those few cases became thousands, with the situation evolving  into an unforeseen, unstoppable pandemic. Now, halfway through March, eve...

For many high schoolers, understanding what life outside of high school entails and how to utilize personal strengths for the future is a source of constant internal turmoil. However, this is not the case for Memorial senior Brandon Escobedo, who says he’s known for a while now that his path in life involves joining the Marines.

Transitioning to College Q&A

Gracie Fillet

March 3, 2020

High School is the final step on the path to college. For some, it’s in a few months and for others it's still four years away. Whether you’re a senior or a freshman, the thought about going to college is scary, exciting, and also very unknowing. One thing that we are always told is that college may be different for everyone, but it is an experience. I was lucky enough to have an interview with freshman Andres Medina who currently attends Collin College with a major in Computer Aid and Technical Drafting to get to know his experience so far as a college student.     Q: Were you scared to go to college? If you were, why? AM: Yeah I would say I was. It was new territory, like going to a new schoo...
