    Identifying the unique plants on campus

    by Ansley Mbah

    Snapdragon-Biennial: There are many unique plants on campus that students can view for their own enjoyment. A variety of people work on the beautification of the campus. "I love the collection of plants that are chosen for McEachern’s campusm," environmental science teacher Gretchen Davis said. A spring flower that is extremely popular among gardeners are snapdragons. Snapdragons have tall spikes of brightly colored flowers that bloom profusely in cooler weather. Most are intensely colored and real standouts in the spring or fall garden. Snapdragon flowers start blooming at the bottom of the stalk and work their way up, making for a long period of bloom.

    Seniors Jacob Larson and Kyle Rast were the start of the Makerspace. “This club is going to help a lot of students, not only the ones interested stem but in every class as well,” Larson said. Rast and Larson had been in the Robotics club multiple years and saw a need for a 3D printer and laser cutter, then discussed the benefits for every student with equipment such as that. “It started with a dream, which turned into a grant, which ended in hardwork and dedication from Jacob and Kyle,” Amacher said.

    Disqualified - Junior Tamiya Robert was disqualified due to a false start for the first time this season at the McEachern Invitational track meet on Apr. 15,2017. Roberts is McEachern’s fastest 400-meter dash runner, and had she run close to her season-best time, which is 56.87 seconds, she would have easily placed in the top three. Robert’s teammate senior Jasmine Reese was able to complete the race, and placed 12th with a time of one minute 0.04 seconds. On the men’s side, senior Jeffrey Young placed sixth in the 400-meter dash, with a time of 49.94 seconds. The men’s first place winner ran his 400 meters in 49.54 seconds.
