From the moment class of 2019 graduate Katie Hardie found out she had received the International Baccalaureate Diploma, she said she knew she had to thank those who helped her along the journey.  “My first instinct was to email all the teachers that helped me get there,” Hardie said. According to International Baccalaureate (IB) Coordinator Jenny Magdal, 13 of the 24 diploma candidates received the diploma. “I can only imagine the pride that they should feel in their accomplishment,” Magdal said. “It's such a huge accomplishment and to see 13 students get this recognition is amazing.”  Magdal said the reception Aug. 12 served as a way to honor recipients’ time at Park, creating a very cheerful environment. “It's always so nice to see the kids as they're almost...

According to senior Amber Tran, the Wooddale bridge improvements help traffic flow better than before. “It looks really nice and will make things go along smoother, but the stop signs are kind of annoying. I like that there are more lanes so things go by quicker,” Tran said. Senior engineering project manager Jack Sullivan said the construction is mostly complete except for a few minor details. “The bridge construction is substantially complete. There is just a few minor landscaping and pavement markings that need to be completed within the next week or two,” Sullivan said. Tran said the changes will make it better but didn’t notice the bridge needing to be changed. “I didn't really see anything wrong with it before, but I guess it looks better,” Tran said.

After senior Cailey Hansen-Mahoney followed the Hennepin County Sheriff’s race for office in 2018, she said she was interested in learning more about newly-elected Sheriff Dave Hutchinson’s policies.    “His race was really, really interesting to me and I think it had a lot of ideological issues that were brought up in a way that we don’t see in a lot of races,” Hutchinson said. “I think Sheriff Hutchinson decided to run because of decisions that were being made by Sheriff Stanik, so, I thought that it would be an interesting person to have come in and I saw the we would be willing to meet with students.” According to the Huffington Post, Dave Hutchinson, was elected to the office of the Hennepin County Sheriff in 2018, winning 2,300 more votes than Rich Stanek, the former...

After placing fourth at State for the last few years, captain Hope Cassman was excited when the team won third place her senior year. “I would say getting third overall was our biggest accomplishment because the last few years we got fourth, so we were really trying to beat forest lake to gain our third spot back,” Cassman said. Due to construction at the University of Minnesota pool, where State is normally held, this year’s competition took place in Rochester. “Being at the Rochester pool versus the U of M pool was a big change,” Cassman said. “Their pool was a lot different from normal and the set up was completely different. Their sound system was not meant for synchro competitions, so that was a challenge for us, being able to hear the music.” According to assistant...
