Through the troubling times, there are people that rise to the occasion and volunteer to help others in our communities. Emelie, currently a freshman at Memorial, has put her 3D printer and her interest in the STEM field to considerable use. During this pandemic, Emelie has used her time to truly serve her community by creating adjustable face mask buckles that are much more comfortable to wear during long hours than elastic.  Recently, Emelie has been exploring the world of healthcare as a profession in the future, creating these buckles were her contribution to serving medical professionals on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. Adjustable buckles that could fit into surgical face masks seemed an opti...

Chili’s Curbside Pickup Goes Above and Beyond

With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, restaurants have been forced to close their dining areas, leaving them to rely on their drive-thru and curbside pickups. My family recently ordered dinner via curbside pickup from Chili’s, located at 8250 SH-121 S in Frisco, and their service was one to applaud. Chili’s officially closed all dining areas on March 24th and has been constantly disinfecting high traffic areas in the parking lots since. We were able to order our food through our phones, rather than waiting for an employee to approach our car and take our order like other restaurants have started to do. The menu options were slightly limited due to the amount of customers coming in and out, however, there was a fairly short wait...

'Stolen Dreams'

‘Stolen Dreams’

May 1, 2020

When Shattered Dreams was canceled, the senior Video Production team was very disappointed that they could not follow through on getting the important message across to students about the devastating consequences of drinking and driving. Through a lot of hurdles, hard work, communication, and perseverance, the team of talented directors, producers, writers, and actors pressed onward to finish a film that seemed otherwise unfinishable. Directed by Kaylyn Wilson and produced by Zachary Wilkerson,...

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 ...

Are you bored? Stuck at home with nothing to do? Has your screen time gone up exponentially as you stare at your phone for hours on end trying to escape boredom? Are you trying to figure out what else to do but just can’t think of anything as you practice social distancing during this pandemic? Well you’re in luck because a list of things to do while at home has been made for you! Try painting.

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...
