A group of students and a few adults gathered in around the flagpole in front of MTHS late last month for an annual prayer circle, and as part of a global movement known as See You at the Pole Day (SYATP), locally organized by Mill Creek Foursquare Church. In fact, a scroll through the #SYATP Insta...

Assumptions, stereotypes and connotations

By Vivian Nowka-Keane, Co-Editor-in-Chief

November 2, 2017


Filed under Letter from the Editor, Op/Ed

I was intimidated to write this column in fear of offending people or being thought of as a “feminazi.” That in itself is a huge problem within society. No one should hide their thoughts in fear of judgment or because they’re scared of being called a derogatory term that misrepresents their beliefs...

The future in store

Seniors. We love some, we dislike some, but no matter how you feel about them, a piece of you and MTHS is lost when they graduate. In the spirit of graduation, I decided to interview Aarthi Yogendran, Hani Nakkour and Judy Tran, a couple of seniors who represent the MTHS community well. Each one has be...

Coexistence does not mean acceptance

Filed under Letter to the Editor, Op/Ed

It is often said, in our society allegedly riddled with intolerance and prejudice from the right wing, that we should accept people of all cultures and beliefs - the notion being that no one should be judged for their opinions, their personal beliefs and especially not for their immutable traits such...

My name is Samantha Svikel. I’m a sophomore at Mountlake Terrace High School in Mountlake Terrace, Wash. and a reporter for my school’s publication, the Hawkeye. A few months ago you were elected into office and it surprisingly wasn’t as much of a shock to me as it was to others. I was defini...

Dear President Donald Trump Project

March 24, 2017


Filed under Op/Ed, Uncategorized

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. ...

A free press is most deserved by American citizens

March 23, 2017


Filed under Letter from the Editor, Op/Ed

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 ...

Filed under Op/Ed

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 ...

Filed under Op/Ed, Staff Column

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. ...

New year, new you

By Samantha Garcia, ASB Public Relations Officer

January 17, 2017


Filed under Op/Ed

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...
