New Year, better me

It is finally 2018! It took us a while to get here, but we finally made it.

We all need to change our ways of thinking

We're conditioned from birth to believe that there are good people and that there are bad people and that humans are black and white, good and evil. What I've found couldn't be further from the truth.

Looking to the future, remembering the past

As I am about to start the second semester of my senior year, I have come to the realization that time is truly flying. So many changes seemed to take place right under my nose. I pass the new elementary schools being built and I am excited for the young students that will experience the modern schools. However, I feel a disconnect, as a piece of my childhood is being permanently altered. I imagine what it will be like in 10 years when no one can really remember what the old school was like. This is also true when I ...

My freshman to senior years at CMA

High school is tough; boarding school is tough; but a military school is even tougher, especially if you're going in as a freshman and you've never even been in public high school where things are quite different. Honestly, my decision to go to a military school didn't come about overnight, and I -- not my parents -- made this choice. It was the result of my brother attending Camden Military Academy the year before I arrived.

Thankful for you

Thanksgiving is a time to rejoice and a moment you showcase everything you are thankful for. Usually, I would talk about my high school career at North Central High, but I want this to be a little different. You all probably say thank you every day, or at least you should, but on Thanksgiving you need to really think about what you have and who you have to be thankful for. You should be grateful for the people who encourage you, lead and direct you on the right path, and for the ones who have your back no matter what ...

SCSPA never fails to impress

October is not just the gateway month to the holiday season, but also means the return of the S.C. Scholastic Press Association Conference (SCSPA). This annual event is hosted at University of South Carolinas' (USC) Russell House. High school students from around the state gather to share their journalistic work and, ultimately, compete for awards. Attendees are invited to participate in classes ranging all the way from photography to writing -- and even social media. It is the one time of the year when high school journalists can compare, share, and learn from USC's journalism staff.

How well do you know CMA?

Do you know about Camden Military Academy? It's a military academy, obviously, but what else do you know about it?

Banjo in the 21st century

If it weren't for events like Finally Friday and the Blues festival here in Camden, the immaculate name of bluegrass might've already faded into memory. History survives in the twangs of fiddles and the strums of mandolins, so bluegrass still lives on. It lives on through the musicians that choose to carry the art with them around the nation and in our hometown. I'm one of those musicians, tasked with carrying that music with me wherever my banjo and I do roam. As long as we, the modern bluegrass musicians, breathe, the art form breathes with us.

Looking back on a great year

Getting to my junior year seemed to take an eternity, but as quickly as it started, it is now coming to a close. This year has flown by and while it has gone by in a blur, I am thankful for all of the opportunities I have been given during this chapter of my life.

Looking back

I can't believe that I am almost done with high school. People always say that time will fly by, but I never realized how fast it does until now. Graduation will be bittersweet. I am excited to start college and make memories at Winthrop University, but I am also scared of the unknown. Looking back at all of the memories I have not only at North Central High School, but also at North Central Middle School, always puts a smile on my face.

A holocaust by any other name

As far as high school history classes go, students are bound to end up watching a film about the Holocaust on the off day that they're not occupied by a worksheet or test. Films reassure students that the harrowing events leading up to the second World War were very much real. The visuals associated with the mass genocide of the Jewish people -- that of cramped train cars and men with guns and barbed wire and death -- tend to evoke a lot of emotion out of people. As a high school student myself, I know those emotions tend to display ...
