Ariana Grande released “eternal sunshine” on Mar. 8 along with a music video for her track “we can’t be friends.” With smooth instrumentals, melodic vocals and complex lyrics, I give this album a 9/10 stars.

Having played since she was 5 years old, she is dedicated to softball and has committed to UTPB for softball. “When I got my offer it took me a very long time to decide where,” Robinson said. “Softball has always been my dream for college, and UTPB is my fit. When [I committed] I knew I was going to be loved and supported.”

I got a round of applause in the middle of the show for a moment that I am very proud of.”

Posing with their “Featured Yearbook” banner, signifying that the 2022-2023 yearbook is used as an example for other yearbook classes, the yearbook team smiles at the camera. Yearbooks have been on sale for $80 all school year, with 90 left in stock. “Im really happy with this book,” content editor and senior James Sanderson said. “I think other people are going to be happy with it; all our pages look really cute. Issues are a thing, but we have them every single year and we dont let them get in the way. We work on a very, very tight schedule and theres no pushing deadlines back. It’s a lot of fun, though. It is such an amazing staff and a very engaging team. Its very fulfilling work.” Photo courtesy of Paige Hert

Reading together, juniors Ashley Blair and Amia De Leon lean over the Bible to study the chapters they have chosen to discuss as a group. Blair said that the Bible Study Club has benefitted her in many ways, and it can benefit other students as well by giving them a deeper understanding of the Bible. “This club increases the Christian community connection at our school, and provides students a place to ask questions about the Bible, pray for one another, and give each other strong, Christian-centered advice,” Blair said. “It truly makes me joyous to see the impact that this club has on some students, and encourages me to keep Christ at the forefront of my life.” Photo courtesy of Violet Harmon

School, work, exams, college; many things take up students’ time and energy, and it can be difficult to find peace amid a busy day. To combat this busy lifestyle and create a calm environment for students interested in reading the Bible at school, junior Ashley Blair formed the Bible Study Club.

The Bible Study Club was created at the beginning of the school year, and Blair is both the president and the founder. At each meeting, the members of the club discuss two chapters of a book in the Bible, such as how it relates to their lives and what stands out to them, and then they close each meeting with prayer requests and a prayer. Mahler is the sponsor of the Bible Study Club, and they meet every Wednesday in her room 1213.

“I felt so honored to have been asked to provide a safe space for students to connect and build upon their faith—it was an easy yes,” Mahler said. “This club is a catalyst to creating a school culture on the foundation of purpose and positivity. Faith and religious involvement are correlated with well-being, a higher sense of happiness and overall life satisfaction. Through creating hope and optimism, this club can make a huge impact on the school and its students.”

Junior Amia De Leon is the vice president and historian of the Bible Study Club. Her job is to make sure the conversation is flowing and create Instagram posts and reminders for club meetings.

“This is a very low-stress Bible study, [so] if you are not able to read either one or both of the chapters that is okay, you are still welcome to join the club that week and add to the conversation if you can,” De Leon said. “We strive to be a judgment-free zone so if you are a new Christian or don’t understand the Bible that well that is absolutely fine.”

Blair said that the club is welcome to everyone, even non-Christians, and that students can find peace of mind by discussing God in the middle of their day.

“I want to see this club flourish, as well as the Christian community in general,” Blair said. “My main goal [in starting this club] was to establish a greater reach into the school community and to see this club continue even after I graduate next year. I know that [Fellowship of Christian Students] can be intimidating for some students, so creating the club would provide a smaller, more concise space for individuals to share their love for Christ.”

Junior Mia Trejo is a member of the Bible Study Club, and she said the club was eye-opening for her because she’s seen many different perspectives of other students when discussing the Bible.

“I would absolutely recommend this club,” Trejo said. “I think it’s a great opportunity that allows you to grow in your faith and connect with your peers. It allows students to break away during the hectic day of school and calms our minds while we dive deep into the gospel of the Lord. Students also benefit from it because it not only allows them to explore the scriptures in greater depth but also in an understandable way that relates to us as teenagers.”

Blair said that the Bible Study Club has benefitted her in many ways, and it can benefit other students as well.

“This club increases the Christian community connection at our school, and provides students a place to ask questions about the Bible, pray for one another, and give each other strong, Christian-centered advice,” Blair said. “It truly makes me joyous to see the impact that this club has on some students, and encourages me to keep Christ at the forefront of my life.”
