The face seen across campus

Ordinarily, a student’s portrait being left out of the yearbook would be a sad occasion for said student; however, junior Patrick Jones is trying to make the best of it.

“When I got my yearbook I was just kind of like, oh, well this is interesting,” Jones said. “I didn’t know how it happened.”

The yearbook staff is disappointed that students were left out of the book they worked so hard on, and did their best to compensate.

“It’s upsetting because it always sucks finding out someone didn’t make it the portrait pages,” yearbook editor Natalie Scott said. “I’m not exactly sure how he didn’t make the portraits, but I think it was a website problem because the portrait pictures were supposed to automatically flow and I guess they just left him out. We should’ve caught it before we submitted the page but we didn’t so the best way we thought we could fix the situation was giving out stickers so people could manually put him in their yearbooks.”

Jones was a bit surprised his portrait was given out as a sticker which has led to some unusual sightings.

“No one told me [my picture would be on a sticker],” Jones said. “It’s kind of cool I guess, it can be strange sometimes finding [the pictures of me] above urinals and stuff, that’s pretty weird, but overall its kind of cool.”

The yearbook staff, despite disappointment, is still able to find humor in the situation.

“I think hopefully [Patrick all over the school] was meant in a positive way,” yearbook adviser Jennifer Holcomb said. “I mean every single person that we gave a sticker to recognized his face, said “I love him!” and I had one person put a sticker on their lapel and say “Patrick for president.” So I think it’s a good thing, although I would like to see [the sticker] actually go in the book.”

Although he was left out of the yearbook, everyone in the school now knows who Jones is.

“Yeah, I guess [I’ve received more recognition],” Jones said. “Some people walk by me and they’re like “Hey, you’re Patrick!” and I’m like “Yeah, that’s me. I’m the sticker.””

Jordan Toomey, Lead Reporter
You’re walking in the halls. There’s no one around and your phone is dead. Out of the corner of your eye, you spot it: Senior Year. Entering her third and final year in newspaper, Jordan kind of feels like her leg is caught in a bear trap. High school has flown by and now that it’s her final year, she...feels exactly like she did all the other three years. It’s really not a big deal. She just wants to leave. Aside from using an excessive amount of actual cannibal Shia Labeouf references, Jordan also enjoys binge eating excessive amounts of chocolate, watching way too many YouTube videos, and taking naps in odd places (Ex: On top of bar stools). Jordan thinks she’s probably the best person who’s ever lived, and though several people have tried to convince her otherwise, she remains confident in this fact. If she could marry anyone in the whole world it would be Whataburger. Jordan is looking forward to doing more opinion pieces this year, because although she excels at and love news writing, she has a lot of thoughts that she would like to share. If you’re ever sad, talk to her, because she gives a lot of good advice. On the other hand she’s very blunt about it, so approach with caution. She is way too sarcastic for her own good and sometimes crosses several fine lines, but the good news is this - she doesn’t care. In closure, this bio is all over the place but that’s okay, because it’s just a normal Tuesday night for Shia Labeouf.
