While attempting to crack the code, junior Jessica Lowery collaborates with juniors Keller Lott, Aubrey Saccoccio, Kynlee Bright and Addison Clinkscales to break out of the escape room in a first day activity in journalism class. The group worked together and cracked the code before the time ran out. “It was difficult at first, but everyone pitched in with their knowledge,” Lowery said. “Honestly, I didn’t think we were going to escape because we got stuck. I loved this activity to start off the year.”
