Indiana Area Senior High School

By TEAGAN MERRIMAN – As another school year draws to a close, seniors begin to prepare for the next chapter of their lives.  Maggie Medvetz, a member of our own High Arrow staff, is one of those seniors.

The 2020-21 school year is Maggie’s first year on the High Arrow staff, but she has been involved in many other activities throughout her years at IHS.  “During my time at IHS, I was involved in both girls and boys tennis, dance team, track & field, Key Club exec, FBLA, IHS Ambassadors, and National Honor Society,” stated Medvetz.  

Maggie has already confirmed her plans to further her education this fall stating, “I’m going to Penn State – Main, and I’m going to major in Journalism.  I also plan on getting my sports journalism certificate and minoring in Spanish.”

The thing Maggie will miss the most about being a part of The High Arrow is, “getting to be involved in a really fun and entertaining environment. I can’t think of any boring days that the staff had in Mr. Nath’s room.”

The thing she will miss least is scrambling to finish an article planner at the last minute. 

With college comes the opportunity to discover new things and expand one’s horizons.  Maggie is most excited to branch out of Indiana and get to focus on a subject that she is interested in.  She is also excited to meet new people and make new friends.  

At the end of each school year, students typically reflect back on the year behind them.  However, seniors find themselves looking back on not one but four whole years.  “My favorite part of IHS has been being involved in different sports and clubs that have allowed me to make new friends.  I’ve also enjoyed getting to take a variety of classes and learn a little bit more about subjects I do and don’t like,” noted Maggie.

Maggie has dedicated many hours to ensuring the High Arrow is supplied with well-written articles over the past school year, and her hard work is recognized.
