President Donald Trump has been making what seems like every headline in the news these days. It’s not necessarily because he’s a bad leader, but more due to his differences from former President Barack Obama. There are a lot of feelings in our country, community and around the world right now. ...

During my sophomore year, the Hawkeye Editor-in-Chief posed a challenge to the Hawkeye staff to memorize and recite the First Amendment. Later that same year, I would buy a T-shirt from a national journalism convention that read the First Amendment. This past summer, I attended class sessions held in the Newseum ...

On the morning of Nov. 9, 2016, darkness tempted the sun’s wrath, the murk well-aware of its presence both literally and figuratively. The overcast weather only further enforced a mood of confliction that no one seemed to quite understand how to handle regardless of whose side they stood on. It took ...

Looking back at 9/11 and more recently the Boston Marathon blast, people have started to write about and praise “first responders,” a person when hearing or seeing a catastrophe runs toward the incident immediately looking to help regardless of their previous training. OK, I know what you’re thinking. ...

At the start of this year, we are all guilty of making new year’s resolutions. From “I am going to lose weight” to “I am not going to do notes the day before they’re due,” everyone has that one thing they want to change. This is the start of a new year and we are 5 months into the school so...

Structural racism may be prevalent in MTHS, community

By Gavin Norley, Hawkeye Staff

Filed under A&E, Lifestyle, Op/Ed

MTHS is full of different groups and people. But one question comes to mind when observing these groups: Do the students hang out with the people in their groups because of their race? Think about your race. Now, think about the race of all your friends. Is it diverse or are all of you the same? ...

Since I became the Activities Coordinator and Athletics Director here at MTHS in 1995 there is one thing that rips my heart out every time – having to tell a student athlete they cannot play. Whether it’s for grades or a violation of the athletic code, believe me it’s not a job many people w...

That was a great Homecoming Week! I was so impressed by the effort put into planning the week by our ASB, for all of the spirit shown for all the dress-up days and on the day of the assembly.
