The magic of fulton

Nathan Hunt Editor-In-Chief

“This is a repeat after me song!” and “Hey, MASC, how do you feel?’” will forever be the two phrases I will respond to no matter where I am or how old I become. Now, I admit I may look ridiculous chanting a song about a burrito or clapping to the rhythm of “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” but these are characteristics about myself of which I am not ashamed. Experiencing Student Council camp in Fulton, Missouri was one of the most significant learning experiences of my life. Which, by the way, is what they tell you when you first arrive. And when you first hear it, you blow it off, but each day it becomes truer until the time comes when you are forced to leave the “Magic of Fulton.” Fulton was and always will be a pivotal moment in my life. Never ever have I felt more loved and accepted than when I was with my Council J. As I left, I became inspired; I realized I needed to take the “Magic of Fulton” home to the LHS council and beyond. So I came back and decided to make some changes with how some things looked in my life. One change you have already noticed is the look of The Bell. We have changed from newsprint

to copy paper, which will cut our costs drastically. This will allow the community of our advertising supporters some relief and presents beneficial opportunities the staff most likely would not have had before. Another change I made, that was somewhat of an impulse, was the change of my hair color. I recently lightened my hair for a more fun and summer-ish look. You know what they say, “blondes have more fun.” Which, I beg to differ, because as a natural brunette, I had tons of fun already, but we will see. Speaking of changes of color, the walls of the high school have had a major splash of character. Which at first, I admit I was hesitant about, but now I greet the change and embrace the diversity it shows in the high school. So, to all of you, keep in mind throughout this year to accept change. If at first you might be totally against something, give it a second chance. Think over why the change occurred and, who knows, you might just find that you like it. This year I will introduce to you the “Magic of Fulton,” and I am asking you to embrace the change and accept a new way of thinking.
