The Spartan Speaks

Kate Edwards
During my final year at Orono and working with The Spartan Speaks, I will act as the Editor in Chief for the print editions. I have been involved with the newspaper since my first year at Orono when I took Journalism 1 with Mrs. Herring. Newspaper is one of my passions because it allows me to be in the center of the activities at Orono and to write about and take pictures of events that interest me. Next year as I begin to pursue a four year college degree I hope to major in Journalism and or Environmental Science.   In addition to participating in Journalism, I also am the cheerleading captain this year and participate in the dive team. I am also involved in Orono's DECA chapter and hope to compete in that again this year. After school, when not at dive or cheerleading, you can find me at Wayzata's Ben & Jerry's where I am a part-time scooper.
