Senior executive editor Natalie Murray, senior associate editor Lily Cooper and junior designer Ava Eaton all sit in conversation with recent clients. After the completion of the Parks and Trails Foundation logo, representatives visited the T-Wolf Agency to provide thanks for all the work done. “I know how beneficial it is to be able to work with clients,” Murray said. “We had a previous executive editor come back and tell us how good of an opportunity it is to have this agency here especially if you want to go into graphic design after high school. The people she’s in classes with didn’t have any access to the things we do here and theres only one other LISD school that has a class like this. It’s just a really good opportunity to get real world experience especially when we get to work with people outside the school. It’s just so real to get that experience with actual clientele and how things really work in the industry.”

Posing with the gold ball trophy, the varsity girls basketball team takes a team photo after beating Liberty Hill 42-37 in round three of the playoffs. The team will face Corpus Christi Veterans Memorial High School on Friday at 5:30 p.m in San Antonio. “I’m feeling so excited [to move on in the playoffs],” senior guard Avery Allmer said. “I feel like this is a big moral boost because we’ve lost a lot of close games and I feel like this is just a really big win for us.” Photo by Alyssa Fox

Carefully balancing one piece of paper over another, junior Ryder Wilkinson builds a paper tower with his team at the Architecture Club’s second meeting. Ryder said he was interested in architecture in the past, but the Architecture Club allowed him to get back into it and learn new things. “I [won] one of the competitions, the first one that we had,” Wilkinson said. “[In the second competition] we lost [because] we could not build a tall enough tower that could withstand the blow of a powerful fan, [but] I still had fun because I was with my friends.”

A few of my favorite movies of this month are shown in this image. I had to limit myself to only two Andy Samberg movies, otherwise the graphic looks more like a memorial.

Pictured above is the crafting club social media page that junior Makena Filippoff and sophomore James Morris-Hodges created. The crafting club was created to allow students to have an opportunity to learn how to create different kinds of crafts and to collaborate with other students interested in crafting. “I love to do crafts but I find myself feeling lonely when doing crafts,” Filippoff said. “With no one to share my ideas or experiences with, it can get boring. I wanted to get a group of people that have an interest in learning [and] doing crafts to be able to have fun and socialize while crafting.”

Natalie Herzig Senior Column

     As I enter my freshman year as a theatre student at NYU, I realize that my resumé was an important part of my admission decision. My resumé stated my credentials as an actress, what plays I had done, what roles I played and what skills I learned along the way. If I had a resumé for all the skills I learned in high school, it might look something like this:

      Natalie Herzig, age 18: height: 5’ 9”, eyes: blue. Has the ability to study for a test and immediately forget the information afterwards, can be an optimist in even the worst of situations, is a sucker for burrito week, is known for being obsessed with her favorite teachers, can receive the best of advice from her parents and completely ignore it, has learned to look before she leaps, has the ability to be in 15 clubs and still find a way to sleep, can mediate the angriest of friends, can be completely devoted to her fads for the entire 15 minutes they last (i.e. yoyo-ing, Buddhism, roller skating, sewing, Mario Party 3), has learned not to spread herself too thin, can get to school on time in even the latest of mornings,  can drive and eat a full meal at the same time, can drive and study for a test at the same time, can drive and get dressed at the same time (just kidding), can, at any moment, embarrass herself, can walk into a room with confidence, can effectively use puff paint, can analyze rhetoric,  can calculate velocity, can debrief anyone on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, has learned never to be the late student—to be the late student who brought doughnuts, can save her money, can blow all her money on one thing, can read (and understand) a classic novel in one day’s time, can pretend she wore mismatched shoes on purpose, and face the challenges of college with a lamenting smile.

     No matter what is on my college resumé now, these are the skills that will mean most to me in my future. Despite what you may have heard, high school is not just the time to build your college resumé, it is the time to grow and learn about yourself and about life. I would like to say thank you for everyone who helped me acquire the skills that really matter.
