Meghan Llamas – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- With midterms rapidly approaching, LRHS’ Youth in Action club (YIA) has put together a guide to help Mustangs “conquer” exam week.
Each member helped write a few tips in a pamphlet, such as study tips and ways to de-stress. It is split into 3 sections: Helpful Study Tips, Day of the Exam, and De-stressing. Each category helps to cover information meant to help Mustangs make exam week as easy and least-stressful as possible.
“Many of the YIA members deal with stress due to exam week, so the pamphlet was created to help others handle the same stress. As a club, we all worked on different aspects of the pamphlet in order to focus on writing about activities that interest us,” said YIA president senior Kaitlyn Smith.
“I think the pamphlet are a cool idea to help Mustangs, especially for the freshmen who are taking midterms for the first time. I also love how the pamphlet included so many alternatives for ways to de-stress,” said senior Erika Lyvers.

The club also attached a QR code at the bottom of the cover, so Mustangs who are so inclined can fill out an anonymous survey to give YIA members ideas for more activities.
“So far, we have received a few Mustangs complete the survey as well as some who have read the beneficial tips and advice,” said Smith.
