For FlipSide’s first school year back, we had one senior on our staff — Mary Barker from Scott High School in Boone County.
Mary wrote a lot of great stories related to the environment this year. Read her story about ocean pollution here.
After graduating, Mary plans to attend Shepherd University and major in English, with a focus on editing and publishing.
When asked what she liked about FlipSide, she said it gave her a reason to write.
“It helps to develop your skills as a writer and allows you to make friends and connections in the world of journalism,” Mary said.
