Amanda is our enthusiastic team leader! She enjoys science (one might call her a "science geek"), clothes and shopping, playing the flute, Pirates of the Caribbean (secretly, she plans to become a pirate with Megan-see her info below) and belly dancing. She is going to attend the University of Vermont and plans to major in biological science/pre-physical therapy. Along with being a member of National Honor Society, Amanda is a very active student, as she is the vice president of student council and her class council. You can find her behind the stage at our school's theatre productions as the stage manager. Amanda is an amazing person to be around and she is a friendly person sure to make you smile. Amanda was responsible for writing the Global Warming, Higher Education, and Voting articles, and making the homepage.
Megan is a talented three-sport varsity athlete (soccer, basketball, and softball). She plans to attend Norwich University (where she will be playing soccer for the Lady Cadets) and major in History. She secretly aspires to be a pirate along with Amanda when they grow older. You can find Megan behind the stages of our school productions beautifying our actors with her hair and makeup skills. She is also involved in National Honor Society and is the secretary of student council. As if that wasn't enough, she is also at the top of her class. She's known for saying whatever pops into her head, supplying everyone around her with a good laugh. Megan was responsible for writing the Debt Limit, Foreign Aid, and Wage Gap articles, and putting all of the pages together.
Nikki can be found around school with her beautiful smile. She is an avid, dedicated Red Sox Baseball fan and is always sure to defend her team. Although Nikki has cerebral palsy and uses adaptive technology, she is able to attend and participate in most regular high school classes. What she may lack in physical ability is made up for by her positive attitude. Her sense of humor is always there to provide a much-needed morale boost. Nikki was responsible for writing the Outsourcing and Homelessness and Poverty articles.
