Daisy ScholzHi, my name is Daisy Scholz. I love to read and write. But, I also love to wrestle and watch football. Painting, drawing, or anything art related are also things I do a lot, when I don’t have all kinds of homework. 

I am part of the yearbook/21st century journalism crew. I am happy to be a part of this team. I think we have some really good ideas that pertain to the yearbook and newspaper. I’m excited to see how it turns out this year. 

This is the first year that I am a part of the yearbook. My job is sports editor. The main thing I do is help the sports reporters. I just make sure that everything sports related is taken care of and that all sports are represented equally.

CarolAnn GrantMy name is CarolAnn Grant, and I am a senior at Bennett High School. I’m not the most interesting person, I really just go to school, work, and hangout with friends.

This is my first year in yearbook and Tiger Tracks. I am the second Copy Editor for the website, so I review the articles to make sure they sound good, and see if anything needs to be added. I’m super excited to my part in documenting the school year, and I hope I do a good job!

Victoria PicazoI am Victoria Picazo, I am attending Bennett High School. I’m graduating with the class of 2020 so that makes me a senior. What I value the most is the gift of education. I play soccer but not for my high school. I work at a car dealership with my parents. I have attended the University of Colorado Boulder and received college credit hours. I am going to attend the MSU Denver, and I am going to be attending the medical field. I live with my parents and I have 5 siblings. I love spending time with my little brother he is my favorite sibling. One of my siblings is in high school with me she is a sophomore. I enjoy exploring different states and countries. I’ve been to Mexico every summer and winter. Mexico is where my heart belongs in. I moved to Watkins Colorado last summer, I used to live in Denver and I attended Global Leadership Academy, now I attend Bennett Senior High. It was a hard change from Denver to Watkins, but I adapted quickly.

Carson PotterCarson Potter is a new student to this school and community. He enjoys poetry, watching sunsets, and long walks on the beach. He is proud to have been to Carson National Forest and this was the greatest of his accomplishments. When asked what he wants to do with his life he said, “Uhhhhh, I don't know. Maybe something that gets me money.” You may see him walking the halls in one of three sweatshirts. 

His involvement in the community extends as long as this article because he plays no sports and has joined no clubs. His role in the yearbook and journalism class is to take photos.  If we were to do a full analysis we could say this man is an L7 weenie. In other words; the dude is a square. He also has no relation to Harry Potter. He’s pretty sure he’s made up.

Hi, my name is Mikey Babi and I am a junior at Bennett High School. I have basketball, baseball, and football every year of high school so far.

For my photographer position, I will take pictures at any event that I volunteer for.

Mac CopelandHi, my name is Mac and I am a Junior at Bennett High School. I am a news reporter for the high school yearbook and newspaper. My job is to go to any event I am assigned to, whether it is a school function or something in the community, and write an article about what took place. I like to play football and wrestling.

Teresita MontesTeresita Montes (also known as T), is on her second year as a Bennett Tiger. She originally started off as a Brighton Bulldog. She is the type of person to say hi to you even if she has no clue who you are. Type of person that you will never see angry because she doesn’t have that type of time. She enjoys spending her time listening to music, playing basketball, and finding ways to get you to smile. She’s a ginger with a little extra spice (Hispanic to the bone don’t be fooled). 

She is the Sports Reporter in Tiger Tracks. When asked about her plans after school, she informed us that she has signed up for the Air Force, where she has plans to become an aerospace engineer and spending her life traveling throughout Europe.
