Jessica Joachim, News Editor

Jessica Joachim is a senior at North Cobb and is the News Editor on the journalism staff. Jessica is in the magnet program and balances clubs, schoolwork, and various after school activities. She is very passionate about writing and allowing readers to see things from her perspective. She has also developed an affinity for photography and taking videos as she learns her way around a camera.  

Jessica loves to cook and bake in her free time. On Sundays, she enjoys working with the children at her church and planning events for her youth group. During breaks, she likes traveling and exploring new places and cultures. She hopes to travel more when she is older and go to more countries.

Jessica will attend a university most likely in state and possibly move out-of-state in the future. Jessica is not entirely sure about what she wants to pursue as a career when she gets older, but her interests include journalism, business, and medicine.

With avid milk drinkers unaware of the origins of dairy production, the truth of the process shocks consumers nationwide. Although campaigns put in place attempted to promote milk consumption, later, the changing diets of Americans caused a shift in preferences, increasing the demand for dairy milk alternatives. These drink alternatives take store shelves by storm, and creative recipes fill the dinner plates of willing experimenters.

Today, small plastic babies hang on the walls and perch on top of bookshelves as part of a prank that seniors began. “Someone purchased 500 babies on Amazon and they decided to wake up early this morning and hide them in the school. When people find them, they name them, and rehide them at the end of the day. I left class to find babies because I’m really competitive, and I have six right now,” senior Nina Shack said. The students hide the mini babies in random places around the school as they participate in this novelty game.

NC’s special education class partners with neighborhood store ZoYo, offering students a sweet treat during the school day.  “We use the money that we earned from selling zo-yo to buying things for our skills lab so that we can practice so that after high school the kids learn how to be more independent and have the opportunity to potentially work,” special education teacher Rhona Hammond said. NC sells the frozen yogurt bi-weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so purchase them before they run out!

The Magnet program will hold their first ever sock exchange event this year on December 18 during all lunches in the Magnet Lounge. The event allows Magnet students to meet other peers within NC through their shared admiration of socks. “The sock exchange is a really cool opportunity for students to find creative, fun, and crazy socks. You bring it into your bundle teacher and they put it in a paper bag and you explain why you chose these crazy socks. The ultimate goal is for us to get to know each other a little better and create a community within the Magnet program and I am excited to be a part of it. I’ve already gotten several crazy pairs,” AP Lang teacher Lindsey Theaker said.
