My HOBY Story

I am Matthew Santos, and to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect about HOBY, the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership. Initially, I thought it would be another boring leadership seminar. But I was very wrong.

They found Mr. Higgins on the floor of the chemistry lab at 9:32 PM on the night of Friday, September 23. His body was still warm. The cause of death was a stab wound, with no murder weapon found. Less than twelve hours later, they concluded their investigation.

I was the only suspect.

Unexpected Inspiration

Julia Ward ’16

I tried to climb the rope to no avail. My cousin Ellie tried to climb the rope; even Jay, the strongest of us, could not manage to climb it. We were all under the age of twelve, we had no muscles but we were determined to conquer the daring rope, to reach the daunting branch.

A Word from the Rubble Staff

Looks a little different around here, doesn’t it?

Welcome to The Rubble’s new webpage. This redesign has been in the works now for quite some time, but it is great to see that it is finally beginning. We loved the old look of The Rubble, but as a whole, the club agreed that it was time for a fresh aesthetic start. Most of the students that remember The Rubble from its first years would agree that its dynamic now is very different than it was just four years ago; where contributions were once few and far between, The Rubble now has a devoted group of contributors and staff members working hard to ensure that the student body’s voice has a public outlet.  We’ve changed a lot over these years, and we felt it was time that the website reflected this change.

So, go ahead! Look around the website, read some of our latest contributions, analyze our new font choices if you want. This is a community for the students, after all.

It’s an exciting road from here. From all of us here at The Rubble, we hope you enjoy it.

Experts estimate that these masses of plastic pollution range in area from as small as Texas to as large as the United States. According to Green Peace International, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the North Pacific slowly swirls clockwise, choking the fish, marine mammals and birds that get trapped inside of it.
