Caty Franklin
 A creative mind is a precious tool of inspiration. For junior Caty Franklin, It was her love for writing that brought her into newspaper, and back for her second year as the news section editor.

  “I have always really enjoyed writing,” Franklin said. “I just wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with my love of writing. I found out that I love journalistic writing. I kind of found a way to channel my love of writing.”

  Franklin is a social person and enjoys talking to many different people.

  “I really like getting to know people in newspaper and out of newspaper,” Franklin said. “It's a really good way to get to know people with interviews and stories that you write.”

  Franklin also enjoys wholesome activities outside of school.

  “I volunteer a lot through my church,” Franklin said. “And I also babysit.”

  As Franklin starts her second year of high school she is ready to take on new challenges and embrace the nature of newspaper.

  “I enjoy newspaper writing, a lot more than ELA writing,” Franklin said. “ It's a lot different from the writing they teach you in ELA or history.

  Franklin acknowledges the challenge of newspaper and journalistic writing.

  “Deadlines are hard,” Franklin said. “It is a pretty quick turn around trying to write and design an issue in one month.”

  Franklin has found something she enjoys in newspaper, and she has found community and enjoyment in volunteering outside of school. Franklin is excited, and ready to see where this year takes her.
