Class of 2013
“The Senior Prank”
Every year talk and anticipation foreshadows the end of the year of the possibility of a senior prank bigger and better than the one before. This one might have been made the high mark the whole school bolsters up.
When Interviewing Freshman Cameron Theus about the success of the prank he stated, “I think it was better. It was a lot more creative and elaborate than the one last year.”
With almost half of the cafeteria’s tables missing and put instead dead center of the commons, propped up such as a pyramid rising high to the ceiling, with numerous cups full of water, and an array of sports trophies sporadically throughout, this year’s prank was creative and perfectly timed.
Senior Pranks often cross the line, causing expulsions and severe damage to school property, but this year seemed to prove a perfect balance between responsible and rebellious.
To get a different perspective from the student body Deshaud Stinson explains, “I think it was stupid, dumb, and ignorant and could have been a lot better.”
A classic outtake on the High School senior prank, some will love it; some will hate it; but then in the end, it must be beat the following year.
Senior Spotlight: Taylor Ann Yaughn
By: Riley Alford
Taylor Ann Yaughn, a senior at Harris County, has chosen Columbus State University as the college she plans to attend and has already been accepted. Her fall semester classes start in August. She is excited to move into the Cougar Town dorms adjacent to the CSU campus.
Taylor Ann is planning on double-majoring in theatre and education. Although she’s been active in Harris County’s theatre program since her ninth grade year, teaching theatre is not her first career choice. Instead, she wants to pursue literature as her focus because she believes the students will be better behaved. She wants to teach high school literature after she graduates from CSU.
Taylor Ann hopes to continue to participate in activities with theatre in the CSU theatre program and in the Springer theatre program in downtown Columbus.

Attention Seniors: College is approaching very quickly. Some of the deadlines for colleges are next month and most of the deadlines are in May, so it’s crucial to take the SAT and the ACT if you haven’t already.
The Next upcoming SAT is on March 9th and the deadline to apply for that date was on February 25. However, you can still complete a waitlist request. The next upcoming ACT is on April 13th and the deadline to apply is on March 8th. To sign up for the Act, go to SAT.collegeboard.org and to sign up for the ACT, go to actstudent.org.
In order to be accepted to any university, you are required to take one of these tests to determine your acceptance, so they are both essential if you plan on going to college.
