The Downey Legend

Lukas Luna, Co-Copy Editor

In his second year as Co-Copy Editor, Lukas Luna, 12, intends to fulfil his future plan of continuing his passion for journalism. With this being his third year in Newspaper, as well as being a Downey High School writing center tutor, Luna works hard to challenge himself. He is always willing to push his boundaries, as he just recently interned for “Voices of Creativity” this summer where he got to interview author and educator, Renaldo Lawrence. 


Luna explains that covering event stories are his favorite part of Newspaper. “It’s the most memorable, the most exciting,” Luna said. “It’s hands on, where you feel the most official, where you’re able to get those ‘in the moment quotes.’

During the second week of March, Downey High School dedicated a full week in regards to Mental Health. Sofia Rodriguez (Left), 12, and Tyler Hanks (Right), 12, spent their lunch in the Writing Center for a Meditation Session on Monday, March 9th. “I love the idea of Mental Health Week because it can help me and my peers out,” Hanks said. “When there’s a big test, I get really anxious but I try to think positive and tell myself that it’s only a test.”

As the director from Large Group Drama, Saul Conde, 12, was proud and passionate about their competition as they take the 9th place trophy. “DTASC has multiple categories and we had entered in large group drama which the only thing was to pick any dramatic piece, do it in 8 minutes, 4 chairs and no more than 6 people.” Conde stated “We were trying to replicate all of the KOS and terror one feels when going through a suicidal period.”
