Do you remember all those “2016 is cursed” jokes two years ago? Well, for many, 2017 was even worse. Big events like record breaking hurricanes and the inauguration of Donald Trump left a lot to be desired for many. On the smaller scale of Jefferson City High School, some less than perfect events hit us hard over the 2017-18 school year. There was the “racist car” picture, that one time when the school blocked History.com, and tardy sweeps that irritated everyone involved. We also lost several of our own to tragedy. However, it wasn’t all bad. This year marked a turning point in activism, both nationwide and within the student body. We held two (two!) protests against gun violence, which were both peaceful and successful and got administrators’ attention. JCHS also got new clubs like E-Sports and Poetry, both of which are huge hits! Events like the Color Run and the amazing Great Gatsby-themed prom brought us together as a school and a community. So… yeah. We had some serious shortcomings, but it wasn’t that bad. At least it wasn’t 2016! That’s a really old meme, but hey, still true!
