U-High Midway

Emma Trone
I joined the Midway staff as an accelerated beginning journalist my freshman year. My sophomore year I served as an assistant editor, and junior year I was the editor of the sports and recreation section. As a senior I was an editor-in-chief. I love telling stories, and journalism allows me to do that in so many ways. In addition to working for the Midway, I'm also a Student Council representative and a member of the swim and track teams.
