The Student News Site of Carver Center





Carver Catalyst is Carver Center’s online and print source for news and entertainment.

This publication runs both as a class and as a club, working together to produce innovative, informative, ingenious content.

Catalyst Club meets every Friday during Wildcat Time, and select days after school.

The class meets as a regular part of the school day!

We all work together collaboratively through meetings and schoology.

Any student interested in joining our team is encouraged to reach out to Ms. Mlinek at [email protected] or to sign up for the Catalyst wildcat time.

Isabel Stump-Cole

Izzy Stump-Coale is an attentive freshmen at Carver Center, where she is involved in the literary arts porgram! She is happiest when she has cup tea, a warm blanket, and a story to write. Izzy is a reader, writer, runner, boba-drinker, vocab-addict, book-collector (and devourer), and optimist. She love to read fantasy, political biographies, and sci-fi… and she’s working on her small-talk. Continuing to learn the errors of her ways when it comes to telling a story, her greatest belief is that we all need to be taken to a happy, mysterious, thrilling, scary place once in awhile. She hopes to be a journalist who gets invited to fancy parties.
