Jordan Bakar, Staff Reporter

Jordan Bakar is a senior at Millard West, and in his second year of being part of the Catalyst team. At Millard West, Jordan is actively participating in various clubs and organizations, such as the National Honor Society. Jordan does a lot of video making, digital design, editing, and photography on the side, as his hobbies. Jordan also enjoys producing YouTube videos on his YouTube channel, “CrewElite” as he loves to connect with fans. This is a great way to share the same interests with similar people, and share ideas. Being able to use and understand how to use complex software and applications gives me new ideas and interests to create something original.

Clamping all the wood pieces together, senior Thomas Detlefsen wanted to get an idea for how his guitar would look semi-completed, without using glue. He just finished sanding the body of the guitar and had few more things to add to it. “Here I finished sanding on my body and decided to dry clamp all my wood pieces together without any glue along with a few pieces of hardware to get a rough idea of what the guitar would look like when it’s finally complete,” Detlefsen said. “After the whole process, it was satisfying to finally see it come together and start to look like a finished project, especially one that so closely resembles the original guitar it’s based on.”

Doing a clear in a lacrosse game, junior Alexander Rodenbiker (in black) plays lacrosse against the Waukee Warriors. This game was a long and adventurous one, lasting almost three hours. “Playing in the intense summer heat made this game hard,” Rodenbiker said. “I play on the offensive side of my team, which means I have to do a lot of running around the field.”
