Hi, my name is Mackenzie and I am a senior this year! I have been writing for Spectrum since my freshman year and last semester, I was a Co-Editor-in-Chief along with the Creative Director and the Front Editor. This semester, I'm helping out with the features page. My favorite part of Spectrum is connecting with the school community and working with others in the newsroom. Outside of Spectrum and school, you can find me skiing, watching Criminal Minds, or drinking cold brew.

Environmental Sustainability, one of the topics a group of students in the class looked into for their final project. In the group was Mackenzie Higgins ‘24, Michelle Elliott ‘25, Ella Chester ‘24, Ruhi Kurdikar ‘25 and Sarah Hsia ‘25. This group researched how the community views environmental sustainability. Based on the SPARC survey, they found ways to educate
and better practices for the community. The group also created a word cloud as a method of research for their project. The word cloud was filled with words students think of when they think about environmental sustainability. The group explored discrepancy of community intent and actions, and the discrepancy of community priorities. At the end of their presentation the group came up with recommendations for classes incorporating environmental sustainability into their curriculums, students having more exposure to the topic, more attention to the issue,
empower students, add new core values or add to one of the existing core values like respect.

The Ugg boot began as
a popular surfing shoe
in Australia during the
1960s; however, the style
of the boot, with sheep-
skin and leather is said to
have been created in the
1800s. The name “Ugg”
didn’t exist until the
1960s. Now these boots
have become a winter staple, perfect for loung-
ing around in or going to
school in.
