Elisha Scott, managing & co-people editor

Elisha Scott is a junior and a third year staff member for The Shield. This is her second year on the editorial staff, her second year as people editor, and her first 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’s also on the tennis team where she enjoyed hanging out and practicing with her friends pre-corona. And she loves the Texas Longhorns (Hook ‘em) where her sisters attend(ed). Since Covid, she has enjoyed binge watching Law and Order: SVU, online shopping, and educating herself and her peers about the BLM movement. She can’t wait to continue on the staff for the next 2 years 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 Stanchos's 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.
