Senior Jenny Loveland enjoys collecting vinyls, going on road trips, and looking for cool bugs on hikes. She also does the vocals and guitar for a local garage band, kennesaw, that she formed with her close newspaper associate and bassist, Dominik Perez.

This will be Loveland’s third and final year on the Chant’s staff, where she will be serving as copy and photos editor. Loveland looks forward to the increased responsibilities of her positions and plans to take advantage of her last year in her favorite class. After graduation, she plans to fulfill her seven-year-old-self’s dreams and learn everything there is to know about bugs by studying entomology at the University of Georgia in Athens.

With differences in socialization and lived experiences, people of different genders inevitably encounter differences and disagreements. However, people should never use these differences as leverage to discredit and disrespect an entire gender.

Introduced to the Senate just before “spring forward”, the “Sunshine Protection Act” offers America a way out from the struggle of losing an hour each spring. After passing the Senate with a unanimous vote, the bill has stalled in the House, caught between those wishing for sunnier evenings and those hesitant to lengthen winter morning darkness.

As cancel culture has permeated the internet, users have noticed how the culture creates hostile conditions for discussing issues. While cancel culture does not maintain a monopoly on promoting disrespectful internet arguments, it exacerbates the issue. “[Cancel culture is] not even giving a healthy ground for a debate or a negotiation. Its just saying, My way is right. I dont care what you say. I dont care what you think. I dont care what you believe. Im not taking any of what youre doing into consideration. Its all self-centered,” art teacher Karrie Arana said.

After students attended school virtually for up to three semesters, teachers experienced higher rates of misbehavior in their classes. This, combined with the numerous other stressors stemming from the pandemic, caused teaching to become more difficult. “Teachers have had to deal with some of the most horrible and “unbehaved” kids I have ever seen in my entire life. Last semester, I heard about teachers crying because of how bad their students [were], how much they don’t enjoy teaching anymore,” Kell senior Presley Knudsen said.

While a relatively small field in science, entomology plays a large role in the lives of everyday people, frequently without them even knowing it. Intertwined in the way that humans grow food, interact with the environment, and understand the nature of the world on a small scale, entomology remains applicable to nearly every part of life.

With each passing day, another NC student hears the exciting news: Coach Adam Cogbill’s muffin cart has returned to the halls and courtyard of NC. With the help of Coaches Jeffrey Bettis and Matther Tener, muffin distribution has resumed, with COVID-19 safety precautions still in place.

Filled with resources and staffed with experienced librarians, libraries constitute an invaluable community resource. “Most people do not realize that libraries have so many resources other than books… Public libraries offer local teens Tutor Atlanta, which is a fantastic online tutoring program for K-12 students, as well as ebooks and magazines through both Sora and When libraries do open for full services in the future, teens can go across the street for volunteer opportunities and gaming,” NC media specialist Melissa Wheeler said.

Literature teacher Lindsay Theaker remembers the craze leading up to New Year’s Eve in 1999, eventually culminating in a relatively peaceful new year that avoided major disaster and apocalypse. “I remember distinctly that my parents unplugged all the electronics in the house and they were super panicked about the date setting on the computer which only went to 1999, and they were super freaked out about what would happen at midnight. I remember thinking it felt silly, but we went along with it, and they were totally fine,” Theaker said.

Autumn comes as a relief from the South’s burning summers and an opportunity to enjoy clothes and activities that would otherwise pose the risk of heatstroke. “I’ve been spending my fall [by] spending much more time with my family ever since quarantine started. I want to celebrate the season by fashionably changing my attire and cherishing the cooling weather because it’s not burning hot anymore,” junior Lena Chanthasalo said.

Although times and technology change, NC’s yearbook remains constant. Year after year, the yearbook staff compiles NC’s history into a neatly laid-out book, detailing the people and events that make the school. “I often tell my yearbook staff that they have the pulse of the school. This year, our pulse rate has slowed because there just isn’t as much going on. We knew going into this year that gathering content would be our biggest challenge if we continued to approach the yearbook in the same way that we always had, so we decided to shift our focus away from the school at large and focus more on the individual students who are still thriving in their own ways,” Yearbook Advisor Stacy Baldwin said.
