Prayer is the one thing that closely connects a person to God by allowing a conversation between either one or multitudes of people and Him. Every year Christians all throughout the nation gather around the flag pole at their school for that one reason: to pray.

Most people associate art with a painting or drawing, or sometimes music. However, no one ever considers theater to be in that mix. "Theatre is truth, played out before us in a way that ignites our imagination, reframes our perspective, and reminds us what it is to be human," Ms. Sally White declared. This...

I have a secret: I want to be a goat herder when I graduate high school. Just kidding. Although, if my future profession as a missionary does not go as planned, goat farming, here I come.

Walking into high school as a freshman can be hard. Every aspect of the year from being called a grape, getting booed at during pep rallies, or getting excluded from the overall group; it is not the most fun grade. However, it is funny how fast our opinions change over the years as we make our way from...

Over the past four years at Central High School I have met some wonderful individuals and enjoyed the ups and downs here at my home. Becoming a Pounder at first was very hard for me, moving to a school and town where I did not know anyone or even know the area well. The community here at Central was...

Happy Valentine's Day! Before we dive into what Valentine's Day is, let us take a look at the history.  In 496 A.D., Pope Gelasius designated Feb. 14 as “Saint Valentine’s Day.” It was a day dedicated for Saint Valentine, who was killed on February 14th 269 A.D. In the late 1300s, a famous ...
