Texas High run through

Face masks for all

September 18, 2020

High school football is no joke in Texas. We live off the excitement before the first game of the season when we are just a city with a dream. This is the unparalleled excitement before each season that is being threatened to be taken away. Having, or not having, a football season affects more than just ...

The shows that built me

High school is about finding yourself and learning from your mistakes. Modern day teenagers, however, have the privilege of learning from the mistakes of others. We have access to such a wide variety of media, Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, and because of this, I have spent the last four years escaping into...

Set goals, raise the bar

Set goals, raise the bar

June 12, 2020

Life is the most unpredictable thing we know. There are many times we feel prepared, only to have the situation change. That is exactly how high school is as well. Throughout my four years at Texas High, I have had the chance to experience some amazing opportunities, while still learning about myself alo...

I remember when

I remember when

June 11, 2020

I remember my first day of high school. I remember coming in nervous, not really sure what to expect. I remember thinking that graduation was far in the future and that it would be a long time before I had to go to college. I remember all of these things as if they were just a few weeks ago. I also...

Senior Andrea Loredo's love for reading came when she found the right book.

A good book

June 10, 2020

I am a bibliophile, which is just a fancy way of saying that I am a bookworm. My whole life, well ever since I could read, I have spent it with my head in a book. Reading everything from ‘Catcher in the Rye’, by J.D. Salinger, and ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, by Harper Lee, all the way to ‘Poet X...

“How do I do this the right way?”  That’s the question that is running through my brain right now as I begin to type this. It’s the reason I looked up “senior column examples,” on Google five minutes ago. It’s the question that runs through my brain almost every time I begin to do somet...

Senior Anna Grace Jones, editor in chief, will attend the University of Texas at Austin.

Every moment

June 1, 2020

On March 13, 2020, I stepped onto the Texas High School campus for the last time as a student. I thought I would be returning a week later, after a mundane spring break. I thought I still had a few more weeks to enjoy all the lasts of senior year. I thought there would be more stressful classes, more...

Seniors Molly Kyles, Addison Cross and Anna Grace Jones were editors in chief of the newspaper.

Not the end of the story

May 29, 2020

Stories are everything. We tell ourselves the story of who we are, and what we want our place to be in this world. We obsess over songs and movies because their stories resonate with us. As we say goodbye — albeit abruptly – we recount the past four years and try to craft a story out of those mome...

Religion is an important part of the Hispanic culture.

A different normal

May 14, 2020

Everyone is raised differently. When we look at people we don't really think about the way that they were raised because of how similar most people can be, yet some people are raised completely different than the “normal” that we are used to, especially when you are raised in a Hispanic household....

Without in-class instruction, some students struggle with online school.

School from home

May 13, 2020

School work can be time consuming and at times overwhelming. Students create a schedule outside of school to be able to do all of the work that they need to do and work around things that come up in their lives, but this new obstacle has made most schedules go completely 180.  Students are now doin...

Junior Tatiana Shishenina, a foreign exchange student from Kyrgyzstan, will return home in May.

Living in two worlds

May 13, 2020

Leaving one life behind to start a new one 7,000 miles away from home is a risk not everybody is willing to take. Being an exchange student can be a rewarding but also a challenging experience.  When Tatiana Shishenina, a foreign exchange student from Kyrgyzstan, came to Texarkana for her junior yea...
