“The inaugural staff created the name after surveying students for ideas. Although the first year the school did not have a senior class, students were energized and enthusiastically united, especially evident on Fridays with the sea of red in the hallways and classrooms. The inaugural staff wanted something contemporary to go with their vision for the newsmagazine to be vibrant and cutting edge with personal storylines, a publication students would be excited to read on distribution day,” founding adviser Janet McKinney said.
