Shark Scene staff explains what they are grateful for this year!

Shark Scene Staff

The Shark Scene staff members are grateful for many things in life, and they would love to share with St. Louis what they are thankful for this year! 

Starting out with Shark Scene Advisor Kevin Kuhn expresses, “I’m pretty thankful for the physical that allow me to participate in all the things I love to do. Whether it be coaching, or enjoying the outdoors, I’m pretty fortunate to be alive and capable of so much.”

Autumn Mann staff editor tells us, “I’m very thankful for all my friends and family. The one person I am most thankful for is my mom because she is my best friend and is always there for me. Another thing I’m thankful for is my cheer team and my coach! My team is always someone I can rely on, and I love them so much. I wouldn’t be as outgoing and realize that being kind to others is the right thing to do if it wasn’t for my coach. I’m very grateful for all she has taught me.” 

Tyson Head staff editor expresses, “I am most thankful for our school district and all it has taught me– the Social Studies department specifically. If it weren’t for teachers such as Mr. Kuhn, Mr. Caszatt, and Mr. Burleson, I wouldn’t be the same person who is fascinated by history, as I am today. I am also thankful for my mom, who has taken care of me my entire life no matter what, even though the toughest circumstances.”

Staff writer Mckenzie Reid states, “I’m astronomically thankful for my bandmates and those who have relentlessly supported me throughout my music and writing career. Without them, I would have no motivation to pursue a career in something I love. I honestly have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life.” 

Lilly Spencer, staff writer explains, “I’m thankful for many things, one of them being the obvious– like food and water, all the things to keep me alive. The main thing I am thankful for is people– people that have taught me things whether good or bad, I’m thankful. I’m thankful for the knowledge that I have and for the people that have taught me what I know.”

Jason Piece, staff writer expresses, “I have a lot to be thankful for, but I’m most thankful for being able to be back here at the high school after the time I spent in quarantine. It was a stressful time as doing school work was a great challenge for me. Coming back felt like salvation, so I am thankful for being in-person again.”

Brooklyn Elsea, another staff writer states, “I am thankful for being able to see my family again; it has been tight recently, and it is a relief to be able to see them again for more than five seconds in a store. I am also thankful for my friends and our plans for this weekend. It’s always nice to make plans and go through with them. It’s a great escape from the real world going around right now, and I’m excited about it. I’m also thankful for my newspaper class for always turning my day around for the hour we all have together.”

Maria Puga-Trevino, staff writer explains, “As I sit at the dinner table on Thanksgiving, I will be asked, “Maria, what are you thankful for?” Traditionally, I always say that I’m thankful for my friends and family, which I am, but I am also thankful for all of the opportunities given to me and the people that I have met throughout this year. I am also thankful for my health and for being blessed with a roof over my head, and that’s one of the best things to be thankful for. I am thankful for these opportunities that have been given to me because they have changed my health in all of the best ways possible. At the end of the day, when I am asked what I am thankful for, I know just what to say.” 

Korah Honig, staff writer expresses, “I’m thankful for Aaron Bowerman. His mustache never fails to brighten my day. He is so funny when he makes your mom jokes 500 times a day. It never gets old.. trust me. I am so thankful for having a normal senior year. After missing out on so many things in the past years, it makes this year so much more special. We’ve been able to get everything back, and even more. Homecoming, sports games, and student activities have been so awesome since everyone is so happy to even have the chance to be there. It really puts things in perspective.”

Adryana Munoz, staff writer expresses, “I’m grateful for having a roof over my head with food to eat every night. That might be simple but it’s something I always remind myself of every single day. I’m also grateful for having great family and friends who are supportive of me through everything.” 

Aaron Bowerman, staff writer explains, “I am thankful for many things in life, and the most important is I am thankful to be an American citizen. After that, I am thankful for the supportive community here at St. Louis Highschool. Lastly, I am thankful for farm-raised turkeys. This may seem strange to some, but if you’ve ever eaten a wild turkey you know they taste like utter and complete trash. That’s about all for me.”
