I am entering my fourth and final year as a part of the journalism program and am pumped to take on writing for the Raider Wire one last time. Being a part of this program has definitely been one of the most memorable and impactful ways that I have been able to be involved over the last four years of high school, and I’m excited to see where this experience will take me. Outside of the newspaper, I’m also heavily involved in band and marching band and serve as one of this year’s drum majors. If I’m not writing or at band rehearsal, I’m most likely napping with my dog, Bear, or finding creative new ways to procrastinate my homework. All things aside, I’m very excited to be a part of such a talented  staff and finish out my last year here at North!

Raider Time? More like Waste of Time. Most of the time spent in FlexTime Manager is time spent looking at a screen just like this: buffering. Signing up for classes is time- consuming and stressful, and has been a source of frustration for many.
