Amelia Bush, Editor-in-Chief

Hi everyone! My name is Amelia and I am a senior and the Editor-in-Chief. This year I am editing the food and sports pages. My favorite part of Spectrum is the people, I love the fun supportive energy that it brings. I joined Spectrum freshman year as a writer and became an editor in my sophomore year.

“Boy Meets World” first aired Sep. 24,1993. The show begins with the character Cory Matthews having a complex
relationship with his middle school teacher, but by the end, the show tackled many serious issues including child abuse, alcoholism, cheating, and cults. Its spin off, “Girl Meets World” dealt with its own set of issues, but none quite as serious,
because it was a Disney Channel show. Marilyn Monroe wore her infamous Jean Louis dress in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday Mr. President” to President
John F. Kennedy. Monroe asked for the dress to be designed to make her appear naked on stage. This moment led to both John and Robert Kennedy cutting her off as they were worried their affair would become public. It did cause controversy, making it significant within American pop culture history. This performance was one of her last as she died 3 months after.
“Ripley’s Believe It or Not” bought the dress at an auction for $4,810,000 making it the most expensive dress to be sold.
