Wesleyan School teachers have always been a great influence on the community and the student body, so it is always unfortunate to see such amazing teachers leave to continue their journey elsewhere. The teachers leaving after the 2018-2019 school year are Garrett Adams, Jason Scheer and Stephen Mihalko. Keep Reading

Freshman year, I didn’t understand how our softball season worked (I had never played for school before) so after we lost in the first round of the state tournament, I asked the juniors if we had practice the next day, but our season was over and they gave me a hard time about that for the next two years.

The Athletic Circle of Honor is a program that is dedicated to honor the alumni athletes that performed tremendously during their time at Wesleyan. Each year since 2007, athletes have been inducted after holding a rigorous process. Inductees must be a graduate of at least five years, earned a varsity leader in each of the sports they participated in and must have exhibited excellent abilities in their sports during their time at Wesleyan. Freshman Kaylynn Kirklen said, “The Circle of Honor is for the alumni who have shown honor and dedication to Wesleyan through athletics and have impacted the community through their sports by winning state championships or breaking records.” Keep Reading
Tiny granules of black rubber seep into second-hand Nike Cleats. Flickering lights give off an aura of a decommissioned haunted house. But as players open the tiny gate and take their first steps onto the field, the excitement of competition sets in. It is not the Rio de Janiero World Cup finals, but for the next 50 minutes, the flurry of goals washes away the locale and the world’s greatest game is played indoors. Keep Reading
Think of your favorite November traditions. What comes to mind? Thanksgiving? Football? Celebrating Christmas at full force even though it’s only been one day since Halloween? There is one tradition that is often shunned and forgotten: No Shave November.
No Shave November is the sacred birthright of men everywhere. It was originally founded in the archaic year of 2009. It was started as a way to raise awareness for cancer, specifically prostate cancer. Each year there are over 150,000 new cases of this disease, and it is not slowing down any time soon. No Shave November is just a small way for an average person to make a difference. Participants in No Shave November are encouraged to donate the money they would spend on grooming products to charity instead. This year’s charities are the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer and St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
Although Wesleyan may have stripped away this rite of masculinity from us students during the school year, there is no restriction on students during the summer or teachers year-round. Let’s take a moment to appreciate some of the most bodacious beards Wesleyan has to offer.
