Readers of the newest edition of the Highlander Magazine were surprised by a scavenger hunt this Easter season. The hunt sent students around the school solving puzzles, looking for clues, and answering trivia  questions about McLean High School’s history. The hunt would eventually lead the students to a locker, and past clues reveled the number and combination. A prize awaited the victors, who went to Room 133 last Wednesday to claim their reward. 

Out of the many students that competed to solve the mystery, Sarah Short, Brent Newell, Jazz Billings, and Adam Benmira, were the victors of the hunt! 

It was fun, we just looked up the clues and walked around the school. One of the clues was wrong, so we just kind of guessed some numbers and hoped it worked” Short said. 

Indeed, I am honestly mortified that one of the clues was wrong. Despite this, the team of students were still able to figure out the clues and solve the hunt! 

“It was a way of finding out the middle combo we just went one [number] by one.” Benmira said. 

“In the book it was like 2648 was the clue, and the number that we found was 64, and since that didn’t worked we just used 26, the first number instead” Short added.
