Anna and Katelyn: Crew Champions

As someone new to crew, the thought of waking up at 6 am to watch people row boats sounded miserable. I was right that waking up at 6 am on the weekend was miserable, that cannot be denied, however being introduced to the sport that is crew was surprisingly fun! My surprising discovery about the sport was not the only big moment, but also that Anna Alt (‘24) and Katelyn Douglas (‘24), both FHE rowers,…

Buckle Up: Model United Nations is Here!

This week, I got the chance to sit down with current FHE sophomore Andrew Dylenski (24), who is a part of Model United Nations. I did not know much about MUN until Drew filled me in. He stated, “It’s kind of a nice way for students to collaborate, work against each other, [and] work as a team with your school.” Although last year’s season was cut short due to the pandemic, Drew expects MUN to…

An End to America’s Longest War

President Joe Biden’s recent order to pull all troops out of Afghanistan has turned D.C. upside down – causing an uproar across partisan lines. For years, voters have been asking for the United States to pull out of the decades-long war in the Middle East. In 2021, 70% of Americans supported a withdrawal and political candidates, including former President Donald Trump, have campaigned on the promise of bringing American soldiers home from Afghanistan.

The Monthly (Not So) Monger: Scary Dairy edition

This article marks the introduction of cheese to the Hawk Herald. To get things started I’d like to introduce myself and share why you should be interested in cheese.  Other than my occupation as a high school student, for over a year now I’ve been working at a grocery store called “Kingmas,” specifically in the cheese department. My department does all the slicing, sealing, and serving up of cheese. After a year’s worth of experience,…
