Robinson will be hosting Hillsborough’s band and orchestra All-County beginning the evening of Thursday, Feb. 1 and continuing through Saturday, Feb. 3. All-County is an event in which hundreds of band students throughout Hillsborough County gather at a chosen school and practice together for three days in preparation for a final performance. This will be Robinson’s first time hosting. Although it comes with great honor, it also requires heavy preparation and a busy schedule.

Preliminary to the event, Principal David Brown sent out emails and calls warning students of the anticipated traffic. The gathering will bring an additional 700-800 people to school arriving at 8:30 am. The buses will be entering the student parking lot from the Rembrandt Road entrance. Students and parents are urged to allocate extra time and caution for drop-off and parking on Friday morning.

“So again, we are honored to host this event, but understand it may cause some delays in our school traffic on Friday morning. Please be patient with us and most importantly, please be safe,” Brown said.

About the Contributors
Jadyn Grayes, A&E and Multimedia Editor

Jadyn Grayes is a senior at Robinson and the A&E and Multimedia Editor of Knight Writers. This is her third year on staff and her second year as an editor.

This year, Grayes decided to continue journalism because she enjoys the experience, her classmates and the environment.

“I chose journalism, because, well, one, I'm an editor and two, I really liked the environment and the group of people that I've come to know in my years in journalism,” Grayes said. 

In an ideal world, she would be an immigration attorney, after witnessing her mother's experiences as an immigrant. 

“Yeah, career-wise, I would be an immigration attorney because my mom is an immigrant. When I was little, hearing about her experience, like coming to America, made me want to help people going through the same thing. And growing up finding out that there was a career that enabled me to do that. It just kind of like set a fire in my heart," Grayes said. 

Outside reporting for Knight Writers, Grayes is also on the cheerleading team. She tutors younger children in her spare time.

"Because kids who have been through a lot of stuff, big time, they kind of have like a wall that you have to get through. So, it also helps me learn to like to put myself in other people's shoes, especially when you're teaching and it gave me a lot of respect for teachers because I never realized how tough it could be getting through to kids," Grayes said. 

If there was one thing she could teach the world, it would be to treat each other with respect and kindness.

“Honestly, you just never know what people are going through. Like I would say I'm pretty emotionally intelligent. But I never realized that people tend to hide so much so well. So I think just having empathy for everyone, no matter how they treat you, is one of the biggest things I'd have to face," Grayes said.

Ashlyn Miller, Sports Editor
Ashlyn Miller is a junior at Robinson and the Sports Editor of Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff and first year as an editor. Miller's favorite part of journalism is taking photos of all of the sports at Robinson and improving her photography skills. "We don't exactly have press at Robinson so it's rewarding to me to take photos of people doing what they love," Miller said. Outside of the journalism room, Miller stays involved in school with an array of hobbies. She enjoys staying involved in school by participating in swimming, photography and orchestra. She enjoys playing the violin and loves learning new pieces. "If you're able to make the violin sound good, it's a such rewarding accomplishment for such a difficult instrument," Miller said. Miller also likes spending time with her dog in her past time. Out of cats or dogs, she instantaneously chose dogs. "I prefer dogs. I actually own a German Shepherd named Leia and she's the light of my life, but I have nothing against cats," Miller said. Prepared for the future, she plans to attend journalism school, preferably at Duke University and join their ROTC program.  Miller is passionate about media and sports although how competitive positions are. "I want to specialize in the media realm and possibly be a sports commentator for ESPN," Miller said. "I love watching, covering and even playing sports because of the environment that surrounds them and the gratification that comes with doing well." (Profile by Briana Garcia)
