Izak Zeller, co-Copy Editor

Hey there! My name is Izak Zeller and I am one of the Copy Editors this year on the Northwest Passage. This is my second year on staff and I love that I get to help lead the organization I love. I have two dogs, Benson and Sadie, that I love with all of my heart. Outside of the paper, I am involved in Spirit Club Exec Board, Chick-Fil-A Club, Anime Club, Black Student Union Exec Board, Dog Club, Sources of Strength and Quill and Scroll. I’m super excited to be a part of the staff and I am always here to help in any way I can. You can usually find me in room 151 or room 12!

Boosted by junior Parker Pavlik, junior Dylan Cooper does a backflip at the Mother Son Father Daughter (MSFD) dance Nov. 5 in the Cafeteria. The theme of the MSFD dance was decades, so Cooper and Pavlik dressed in 50’s attire. “It felt really amazing once I landed it and knew I didn’t mess up,” Cooper said. “It’s the second time we did it. We first did it as a part of our junior skit for the Bonfire assembly.”

We tried the Pepperjack Burrito from McLain’s Market on Sept. 12. Although we thought it was pricey for the size, we disagreed on whether it was spicy enough, too spicy or just right.
