Charlie Recchia, Editor-in-Chief

This is my first year working with 42Fifty, and I hope to make it a great one. I have strongly enjoyed writing ever since I was in elementary school. Throughout my school years, I would get so excited to write whenever I had the chance. I am now a junior in high school, and I have found a great outlet for my writing with 42Fifty. I really enjoy watching movies and playing music in my free time. I play the drums in a rock band, as well as take part in Oswego High School’s drama productions. With interests like these, I have the knowledge to be a strong Entertainment Co-Editor. I hope I can bring a lot to 42Fifty’s table during my first year.

True Colors Club and the importance of a safe space for LGBTQ students

Members of True Colors club participate in an activity about LGBTQ history.

This is where the True Colors Club of Oswego High School comes into the picture. Not only does this club serve as a great place for LGBTQ+ students to make friends, but it is also a club where the history of LGBTQ+ history and awareness is discussed. Most importantly, it is a safe space for all students to show their “true colors” and feel comfortable for who they are.
