George Doane in 3rd grade.

What was your most embarrassing Wesleyan moment?

At the semifinals in soccer my sophomore year against Holy Innocents, I was grabbing snacks during halftime and I was running back to get in the huddle and I jumped over a sewer and landed on a water bottle and broke my foot.

Date Connor Thompson.

If you had 24 hours left to live, what would you do?

I would go to Krystal with all of my best friends.

Hurricane Florence Gone, but Leaves Trace

in News by

Hurricane Florence started out as a category four over the Atlantic Ocean with windspeeds up to 115 miles per hour. Florence weakened over time to a category two by the time it hit the Carolina’s coastline. However, according to the National Weather Service the hurricane remains “extremely dangerous.”

The path of the hurricane changed its course right before it hit the coast. Florence took a last-minute shift south, lining up to affect Georgia more than previously expected. It had potential to drop tremendous amount of rain, as much as 40 inches in some places.

Wesleyan Football and Marching Wolves

in Fine Arts/Sports by

Last school year, Wesleyan School graduated 20 football players and for the Wesleyan Varsity Football team this year, it means a whole different set of players came to play the game. The team currently has played five games, two won and three loss. Having to coach new young players does not intimidate any of the coaches for what lies ahead of the season. Head football coach Franklin Pridgen said, “Each team is always different because kids graduate, and others rise up. That makes it very fun to coach at this level. A new senior class every year always puts their stamp on our season.”

“When I can’t log into Naviance and the password won’t work so they send you an email to change it but that doesn’t work so you just can’t log in at all.”

Megan Trotter

“The little ends of notebook paper that fall on the floor, Doritos crumbs crushed into carpets, unfluffed pillows, uncapped dry erase markers and moldy lunchboxes.”

Griffin Massey (12th grade)

“When people turn on the blinker for just too long then you don’t know when they’re actually turning.”

Ryan Gomes (12th grade)

“People who go 50 and below in the left lane of 141. It’s the passing/fast lane, it’s ridiculous, just go 60. Then, they honk at you like you’re the devil because you’re a teenager even though you’re not the one looking weird in the left lane. Go 60-65 if you’re in the left lane, or don’t drive at all. Come find me if you’re the fool in the left lane.”
