For technology specialist and veteran Cristian Piedra, nothing says “thank you” to American heroes like 1,500 members of the Wesleyan community gathered in Yancey Gymnasium to celebrate Veterans Day. “We don’t ask for anything as servicemen, and the fact that we are recognized and celebrated is more than enough.”
Wesleyan has two weeks off for Christmas Break. There is time to spend with family and to eat food, but more importantly there is time to catch up on your Netflix shows. The Green and Gold staff asked several high school students which Netflix shows are their favorite that they would suggest for others to watch. Here are their responses for optimal binge watching, spanning across a variety of genres. Happy viewing.
The following students that gave their suggestions:
Seniors, Abbie Lochmandy, Lauren Morales and Whitney Archer. Junior, Jack Mills. Sophomores, Kat Saylor, Grace Tyler and Hannah Hufham. Freshmen, Whitaker Welch, Bella Barnes and Charlie Taylor.
Every year before the first day of school, the freshman class spends two days together on a retreat to form new relationships with their classmates. This year, the class of 2020 spent two nights at a Carolina Point, a Young Life camp in North Carolina.
