This issue’s National Art Honor Society selected feature is senior Mackenzie Pacacha. She explains that “Nature and the world itself inspire me and my photography. Most of my photography is nature-oriented as I find it extremely easy to find beauty in nature. I enjoy making art and especially taking photos because I have such a unique eye that can make any scene look beautiful.”

When describing her image, she expressed, “In the 3 or so years I have been doing photography, this photo is my absolute favorite. Giraffes are one of my favorite animals and the clarity and closeness of this photo genuinely makes me feel so much joy any time I show it to anyone.”

About the Contributor
Spartan pride runs deep for Alyssa Manderach, who is originally an Ocean City, Maryland native. She has spent the last 7 years working to embrace what it means to be a part of Hempfield Area. The Royal has been a dedicated passion of hers since she started writing for it two years ago during her sophomore year. Her work preserving events and memories for the newspaper has pushed her to pursue a career in journalism after graduating from college. Much of her time is also spent volunteering and working with the school as president of United Spartans. Between her time in these organizations, as well as many other clubs and honor societies, she has seen the opportunities to volunteer with local organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Beverly's Birthdays, and Westmoreland County Food Bank. Her plans for the upcoming years involve attending a four-year university, studying communications with a focus on media, so that hopefully she can enter the journalism field as a writer or editor.
