Hello, my name is Kaylin Dains and I am a senior in the 2024 graduating class. I am involved in band, cross country, theater, speech and am an avid volunteer. You may see me around the community at Fareway, where I work as an online shopper, Aheinz 57, or playing my clarinet for the marching band on football Fridays. I am a big music fan and love to share my opinions with the world (whether warranted or not). Having a space to voice my opinions and keep fellow students educated and involved is very important to me, so I decided to join News Journalism when I was a junior. This year, I would like to keep writing stories I find interesting while improving my photography abilities. I hope to go to Iowa State University after high school to pursue a Bachelors in Community and Regional Planning.

Jacque Seidl, Jaclyn Vander Waal and Emma Bedard, the three ADM speech coaches, have been working tirelessly to provide a good experience for all of the guests that will visit ADM during the individual state speech competition. One aspect of this preparation has involved organizing the packets for all of the judges and making the signs so that the guests know where they are going.

Being neurodiverse in high school brings its own unique challenges to students everywhere. Through my own journey with my disabilities, I have found sensory aids to be extremely helpful in providing a safe environment for my schooling.

Spanish teacher Jodi Baier is one of several teachers in the ADM school district that will not be returning for the 2023-2024 school year. Baier isnt positive about what her future entails, but she knows that skills from teaching will follow her. 
I have learned how to multitask and be in tune with peoples reactions. I have a good sense for reading students, and I think I will be able to use that in my next opportunity.

When it comes to fast fashion, a big portion of the problem comes from over consumption. Buying, wearing and then tossing them aside, people buy clothes at dizzying rates. Those clothes often end up in landfills or in bodies of water, growing the steady amount of waste on the Earth.
