(Above, left to right) Amelia Lipscomb, grade 12, and Regan McCall, grade 12, love spending time in the Student Union on the first floor of the Rex Building. They better understand the details of the videos assigned to them by discussing it with each other. Talking with peers was another recommendation by Seniors, as it helps both people better understand the topic at hand.

(Above) Conan Bickford has many big responsibilities as a part of the LHP security team. A lot of these jobs often go over-looked by students because they are things that normally would not cross our minds. One of these responsibilites is to ensure that all safety signs stay up. Bikers and walkers often knock down the “No Tresspassing” signs around campus. Mr. Bickford must ensure that these signs stay put to make sure every Lake Highland student and staff member is safe.

They have been practicing this specific dance for a few months now, and its almost time to show the rest of the world the hard work and dedication theyve put into it. They are rehearsing to discover the way their costumes feel as they dance. Soon the colorful costumes will be brought to life on stage.

(Above) Concerts are undeniably crucial to the vitality and essence of folk music. Folk music, at its core, is an art form rooted in community and human connection. Live performances are the lifeblood of this genre, as they provide an unparalleled platform for artists to engage with their audience in an intimate and authentic manner. Folk concerts, or better yet, festivals, offer an environment where stories are shared, traditions are preserved, and emotions are conveyed with raw sincerity. Folk concerts also serve as a way to promote cultural heritage, allowing artists to pass down oral traditions and keep ancient songs and stories alive. This is seen best through not-so-mainstream artists such Creole folk singer, Bo Dollis’s concerts before his passing in 2015.  Through concerts, folk music finds its truest expression, preserving its authenticity and reminding us of the timeless importance of storytelling and shared experiences in the human journey.
Folk Music Breaks Through the Pandemic

(Above) The fan project that has dominated the Eras’ Tour has been trading friendship bracelets, which is inspired by the lyric, “So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it” from the song, “You’re On Your Own Kid” on Swift’s newest album, Midnights. Fans, such as Kathryn Hudson, grade 11, and Isa Tapia Arocho, grade 11, pictured here, traded before and after the show (or in a McDonald’s
like the transaction I saw prior to the doors opening). Another thing that was featured on most fans’ hands was the number 13. This comes from Swift’s affinity for the number as she was born on December 13. In an interview with MTV back in 2009, Taylor Swift explained why she always draws the number on her hand before a show, noting, “I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro.”

Coach Bullock tells the xteam what he saw in the game, making sure to spotlight the plays of the game and impact players. Also during the speech, Coach Bullock makes sure to mentally prepare the team for the next game. Coach Bullock always ends every speech on a high note., to keep his players’ energy up.
