Stella Grist (she/her), Co-Editor-in-Chief

Hello! My name is Stella Grist and I am Co-Editor-in-Chief of the NW Passage. I am a senior this year and this is my fourth year on newspaper staff. Journalism has been a huge part of my high school experience and I wouldn’t trade my time in the program for the world. As a student journalist, I spend a lot of my time gathering information and writing articles for the rest of the student body in order for you to stay in the loop regarding both on-campus and off-campus events and issues. I would love to continue writing after high school, but who knows? What I do know is that if you ever need to find me, chances are, I’ll be in room 151.

Taking notes, junior Claire Moore studies Feb. 21 in her house. Moore is studying the Crucible for her English class. “This space helps me a lot with studying. I never had a desk to do school work before this year so having this area is a game changer for my school days,” Moore said. “It’s still hard to stay focused and motivated but having an office to work helps with that.”
