The beginning of this part begins with Jeannette getting a job for the school news paper, The Maroon Wave . She had began going to extracurricular activities to report for the newspaper. Now the kids who shunned her began to accepted her. She was devoted to the newspaper and would work on it every day for hours. Jeanette would often spend time after school to work on her articles. There would be nobody else at the school so she would often rummage through the garbage to find food so she wouldn't be hungry. Jeanette did everything to try attempt to sell the newspaper and came up with creative ideas to involve everyone and not just the athletic community or the theater community. Chuck Yeager came to give a speech at Welch high that year and had agreed to let Jeanette interview him afterward. Rex was thrilled to hear about this as he was a huge Chuck Yeager fan. He even helped to prepare questions for the interview. When Jeanette came home that night not only was Rex home to hear and help about the interview but he was also sober.
How would you like to be the editor of ' The Maroon Wave'?
I'd love to! YAYYYYY
Oh hey Jeannette
I'll never be hungry again!
When I went into tenth grade my teacher Miss Bivens made me news editor of The Maroon Wave.
I began going to just about every extracurricular event at the school and the kids that shunned me now accepted me.

I stayed after school to develop my photographs in the dark room, that had a hidden benefit. I could sneak into the cafeteria once everyone had left and dig through the garbage pails.

Chuck Yeager visited Welch High that year. I'd been hearing about Cuck Yeager all my life from Dad...
... Chuck Yeager was giving a speech at Welch High and ... he'd agreed to let me interview him afterward...
Dad was so eager to hear how the interview went that he was not only home when I got back from school, but he was even sober too. He insisted on helping me with the article to ensure its technically accurate.
