Standing with her, a four-peat, and a hard goodbye: this week on Best of SNO

At SNO, we’ve been reviewing tons of Best of SNO submissions this week as staffs rush to get published before the end of the school year. This week, a student at Carlsbad High School fights a scary illness with a little help from her friends, a fourth championship is a little more special for the Canyon High School girls basketball team, and a Kearsley High School student hangs up her pom-poms. Read on for our weekly picks, written and submitted by students just like yours.

Sana Fights with a Smile – Brooke Wasson, Carlsbad High School
“The scariest side effect was waking up and not being able to feel my arms or legs when I woke up. I felt paralyzed. An emergency group had to come and pick me up and I was just crying out of fear since I couldn’t move anything.”

Fourpeat #4Tatum – Erin Sheffield & Codi Bradstreet, Canyon High School
“When you’re down, your heart starts racing because you know you have to get back in the game, but at the end of the game, when you know you’re about to win, it’s one of the best feelings.”

Alburtus says goodbye to cheer but looks forward to her future – Makalia Jenkins, Kearsley High School
“I will never be able to step on the mats as a high school cheerleader again, and that is most definitely my hardest goodbye.”

Technical Center becomes a starting point for success – Demi Nicole Manglona, Borah High School
“We just try to get them on the right path to be a valuable employee for someone down the road.”

Award winning Northampton Community College provides accessible and quality education for all – Alefiyah Vahanvaty, Stroudsburg High School
“You never really grow and learn from those experiences, unless you actually experience it yourself.”

We love featuring student journalism that’s interesting, well-written, and takes a unique angle on the stories we see every day. Encourage your students to polish up that story (or video or multimedia piece) and submit it right here!
