Nielsen enjoys covering many aspects of student life, but especially enjoys writing features on students and events on campus. Nielsen is on the varsity Track & Field team as a hurdler, a Commissioner of Alumni & Advancement, an AP/honors student, a member of CSF and the Quill & Scroll Honor Society.

During her last year on campus she hopes to not only make memories with her classmates, but to also accomplish the goals she has set her mind on for the last four years. Nielsen hopes to allow the newspaper to be an outlet for students and that they can expand their coverage while also creating change within the school community.

The spot features the logos for bands like Queen, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and more.

PAINTING PARTY: Senior Beth Romeyn and senior Chloe Savard work together to paint Romeyns personal parking spot for the 2019-2020 school year on Aug. 12. Romeyn was inspired by the Beatles song, Let it Be, and decided to create a pun by replacing the word be with a drawing of a bee. I decided to paint Let it ‘Bee,’ because as a child my Aunt would call me Bee, short for Beth, so I thought it would be nice to have on my spot as something that represents me Romeyn said.

PAINTING THE BIGGER PICTURE: Senior James Brenninkmeijer begins to design his personal parking spot on Aug. 12. The seniors paid $500 for their spots which benefitted as a fundraiser for the construction for the new ASB building. I think it was a great fundraiser idea because a lot of people ended up doing it and it was a good investment, senior Taylor Wilkison said.

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU PEACHES: Senior Georgia Glowaki paints a giant peach on her parking spot on Aug. 12. Georgia chose to put a peach on her parking spot as a reference to Georgia Peaches, which Glowaki describes as a reference to her siblings who always have called her Peach. Initially I struggled to commit to an image for my spot because I didn’t want it to be void of meaning, Glowaki said. I wanted it to resonate with who I am. A lot of ideas that came to mind were material things which were a bit superficial. The peach idea was perfect because it’s sentimental for me, keeps my family close at heart and is unique to who I am and I knew I’d most likely be the only Peach in the lot.
