I am Danielle Carlisi and I am in tenth grade. I am 14 years old and have a dog, Max, who is extremely friendly towards humans and is 10 years old. I absolutely love spinning flags and rifles on Colorguard, despite the fact that I recently chipped my two front and got stitches because of it. I joined my freshman year because my sister forced me to because she absolutely loved it. At first I was hesitant to join. I didn’t think I would like it, but I wanted to make my sister happy. Plus, I planned on dropping it after one year, so what’s the harm? After doing it for one season, I realized I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, so I joined winterguard. Another thing I love is spreading knowledge and swaying people’s opinions. That is why I joined journalism. Some other random facts about me include I have two older sisters, I love Harry Potter and Marvel with a passion.

It is absolutely so great to give this normal to the seniors,” student council advisor Amber Bronson said. The wall was completed on Feb. 5th.
