Elisha Scott, managing editor


Elisha Scott is a senior and a fourth year staff member for The Shield. This is her third year on the editorial staff and her second year as managing editor. Scott moved to Austin from Fort Worth, TX right before her freshman year in fall of 2018. Her favorite pieces to write are the new teacher exposés at the beginning of the year, and she enjoys photographing rallies, tennis, and spirited Mac events. Her favorite part of MacJ is working on her stories and spending time with the staff (especially getting ‘the skinny’ from co-editors Grace & Evelyn) at late knights. Scott loves art, science, her friends & family, pets, and traveling, as well. She loves the Texas Longhorns (Hook ‘em) where her sisters attended. She can’t wait to continue on the staff for her last year of high school and learn what it takes to be a journalist under the guidance of Mr. Winter and her fellow staff.

Junior Rey Bernacki places his phone into its designated slot in the shoe-holder at the front of Clifford Stanchoss classroom. Students gathered around the cellphone holder before the bell rang for fourth period to begin then slowly, one by one, they parted with their devices, but not before sending their last texts, checking social media one last time and plugging them in to charge before class began.

I’m here for the students, Stone said. I hope they’ll introduce themselves to me and keep re-introducing themselves so I can learn their names and who they are and have conversations with them. I’d like to learn about more students, each of them.
