The Mustang: Staff


Ashley Wolfe, Editor-in-Chief
   I'm a junior, and I've been on the newspaper for two years. I like writing for the newspaper because it gives me a chance to tell a story and to see my name in print.
   Outside of school, I enjoy reading and writing, and I'm involved in many clubs, including FCA, Student Leadership and Book Club. I'm very social, so doing interviews are my favorite part of the writing process.
   I am thankful for a happy and healthy life.

Melissa Burgett, Sports Editor
My name is Melissa, and I am the sports editor for the Mustang. I took Journalism during my freshman year knowing that I want to work in sports media after graduating from college. I’ve loved my experience in the class so far. Outside of the course, I participate in Model United Nations and write for a small online blog that covers the NHL.
I am thankful for my family, friends, my dog and hockey.

Katelyn Siltman, Features Editor

 Hello! I'm a sophomore, and this is my second year on the newspaper; I spent my first year as a staff reporter.

  Funny story on how I got involved in the newspaper-- When I was picking out classes for my freshman year, I saw journalism. Now, when I used to write just random stories in a notebook, I would call it journaling. So without looking at the class description, I checked off journalism for an elective I wanted to do, thinking that it would be a class where you just wrote whatever you wanted. Then I got to the class and realized I was completely wrong.

  Even though the first few days of class were a complete shock for me, I ended up enjoying journalism. I also enjoy music, writing and making people laugh.
This Thanksgiving I am thankful for my family and friends. They all mean the world to me, and I wouldn't be where I am now without them.

Stefani Zeiger, Entertainment Editor
This is my second year working on newspaper. Previously, I had taken this as a one-term elective freshman year, which led me to discover that I want to be a journalist when I’m older. I’m now a sophomore, and for this year, I’m the entertainment editor for the paper. Outside the course, I’m in GSA, Academic Team and Model United Nations.
I am thankful for rock music, Doctor Who, my cats and my friends.
