Mariah Cook
Senior Mariah Cook is the head editor-in-chief of the yearbook department. She is most proud of the 2018 yearbook they are currently working on. “I’m excited for people to see it and get feedback of what they think,” said Cook. A specific aspect of journalism that Cook enjoys most is hearing what others have to say to improve the yearbook. She said she likes it when she can “make a great idea out of a little idea.”

Not only is Cook involved in journalism, she is also involved with cheerleading, dance team, FFA, volleyball, and is a wrestling manager. Allison Berryhill, the journalism teacher, is a role model to Cook in many ways. “She has been there for me through everything. She always has just the right thing to say,” Cook said.

Outside of school, Cook enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, watching Netflix, cheering for the Iowa State football team, and participating in extracurriculars.

If Cook could only eat one thing for the rest of her life, it would definitely be pizza. An interesting fact about Cook that many people don't know is that her great, great, great grandfather invented “Cookies BBQ Sauce.” A belonging she owns that she would never give away is her grandfather's Christmas stocking. “When my grandpa passed away, all of the kids got something of his, and I got his stocking.”

Cook said that her friends would describe her as outgoing and helpful. “People come to me all the time for advice.” Someone that knows her best would either be her mom or her best friend, Kara Christensen. “My mom has been in my life since I was born, and I tell my best friend everything.” Something Cook would never change about herself is her personality.
