Mraz Comes CLOSE to Texas

September 25, 2010 hundreds of people waited in front of the doors of Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas to watch and sing along as Jason Mraz preformed some of their favorite songs such as “Beautiful mess” and “I’m Yours”. The tour was short and exclusive to mostly the east coast.


After Luc and the Lovingtons opened the show with pumped up songs such as ” Send the love” and “The Freedom Song“, the crowds adrenaline level skyrocketed as the person that they had all been waiting for walked into the lights. Row after row of people jumped to their feet screaming their guts out for Jason Mraz. Some people were especially excited, having driven thirteen hours to see him .


Being a friendly person, Jason talked and shared with the audience.

As he started singing, the whole crowd just came alive while they sang along and swayed back and forth. It seemed as though the audience knew every single song he played as they mouthed each syllable perfectly on time with the beat.


His songs “Dynamo of Volition” and “Coyotes” , among others, had everyone forgetting about their lives and fully captivated them with his poetic and moving lyrics.


By the end of the night, the audience had another amazing memory that most of them will remember forever, especially those who drove thirteen hours and encountered many obstacles on the way.

Literary Magazine Provides Creative Outlet


Staff takes break from working on the magazine to pose for a group picture

Morning after morning students hear things about Savrola on the announcements asking for poetry and photography, yet they’re not really sure what it is. Savrola is the literary arts magazine of our school. It includes writing pieces and artwork done by students. The class is seventh period and Mr. Del Castillo is the teacher.

Anyone can submit literary pieces to Savrola and the students  will put the magazine together. They hope to send it to at least three national competitions to be judged and hopefully place high.

“This year’s magazine will probably be one of the best since I’ve been here,” senior editor Maria Scardetta said.

While the class is confident this year, they don’t ignore the fact that they have to work hard. They have after school workdays every Tuesday. Next semester, workdays are everyday, in preparation for their May deadline.

Anyone interested in submitting can go see Mr. Del Castillo in room C209. For students eager to be in the class, Savrola urges young writers to talk to their counselor and Mr. Del Castillo. Savrola has their first open mic poetry reading on October 28 from seven to eight thirty in the Black Box Theatre, where anyone can read their original poetry.
