Howdy partner, my name’s Maggie and I’m your rootin’ tootin’ copy editor for this year’s edition of the newspaper! I’m a junior, which makes this my second year on the Blueprint staff. Aside from working on journalism stuff, I also play the flute in the band, and in my free time I like to draw, bake and crochet (not at the same time though). Some of my favorite things include old, ugly grandpa sweaters, watching Adventure Time, getting coffee from Dutch Bros and camping with my dad. Speaking of camping, I love spending time in nature, and one of my long term goals is to visit every National Park! I’ve been told that I have resting annoyed face, but I promise that I’m friendly and you should definitely say hi if you see me in the hallway or at Target or something. Anyways, I am super thrilled to be an editor and can’t wait to document this school year!

Real Raiders wear pink \\ Participating in the Pink Out game against North Garland, Nicole Soto interacts with the crowd as Rowdy the Raider. “I think that people should be more open to the idea of the cheerleaders and the mascot and join in on chants whenever they can, especially the easier ones, because our football players feed off of the crowd’s energy,” Soto said. The Raiders beat North Garland 47-26 Oct. 21.
