I had popped into Brekke’s for a last minute request for scholarship supplements (procrastination is bad, don’t do it.) A few students remained to ask questions about a project and I didn’t want to intrude so I awkwardly walked over to a bookshelf to occupy myself. I wasn’t looking for anything,...

Over spring break, 14 sophomores went on a science trip to Costa Rica. The trip was organized through the company Worldstrides. It would be easy to think that this trip would be filled with down time on the beach and hanging out with friends, but it actually let students explore science and learn in...

Beautiful mess: other’s advice

March 10, 2015

The best advice that you could give someone is to listen to others and then pick and choose from them what they say to define what is important to you. You should never stop evolving your own advice and never stop listening to what others have to say. Here, several Ames High students share their wisdo...

Last year, Hannah Mumm and I ran for student council presidents. We were super excited about having the chance to take leadership roles in the school which we’ve both grown up in. When the election came around and we lost, we were a little deflated and upset, but still happy for our friends who a...

Getting a time when senior twins Kira and Livvi Mann aren’t busy with school, sports, work, and other activities is almost as hard as deciding which of the many Mann twin stories to share. “What story should I tell?” “Oh man that is a good one.” “Should you publish that?...” The two...
