Mallory Smith, Editor

Hi! My name is Mallory Smith and I am a senior here at Brashier. This is my second year on the staff and this year I will be leading with Grace as an editor for the paper. In addition to our school newspaper, I serve as Beta Club President, help run Brashier CHILL, serve on the Brashier Recycling Club and watch a lot of Brooklyn Nine Nine. I have two chatty sisters and one is a freshman here. However, my favorite family member is my fish, Julius. I am super excited to lead this staff and have an incredible newspaper!

A lot of students at Brashier call Simpsonville, South Carolina their home.

Even with the growth that the area has experienced, students still love and cherish many parts of Simpsonville.

“I was absent for a couple weeks earlier this year, and when I came back, Mr. Burnette helped me coordinate all my makeup work and he has been meeting with me every morning in order to get it all done, which has been so helpful,” said freshman Jaimee Smith (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

“Someone that went out of their way for me was Ms. Gassner, the nurse. During my freshman year whenever I had a problem, she was always there for me and would help me no matter what was going on. Other nurses in the past would brush me off, but Ms. Gassner took me serious, even if it was something small. She wouldn’t let me leave until she knew that I was okay. It was just really meaningful to me because she really cared,” said junior Riya Patel (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

3...2...1…Happy New Year! As the clock ticks down to the last few seconds, people all over the world create New Year’s resolutions to ring in the New Year. Varying from spiritual growth to physical growth, these resolutions are notoriously known for falling apart only a few months later; however, people still continue to create them with the hope that this will finally be the year that they will carry out their resolutions. Many Brashier students chose to make New Year’s resolutions that they will hopefully uphold, and these are some of the resolutions they created (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

The theme of the dance was a Hollywood Red Carpet theme which as accented by the incredible decorations, which included rose petals and celebrity cardboard cutouts. Having these decorations really added to the atmosphere of the dance. Student forum member and junior Shelby Bowers poses while cleaning up these decorations. “I’d say that planning the fall formal is always pretty fun. We are always indecisive about food, music, and ticket prices, but in the end it is all worth it because it’s a ton of fun,” said Bowers (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).
