Senior Evelyn Griffin is proud to be The Shield’s copy editor. She joined the staff her sophomore year because she loves news writing and was eager to be a part of such a talented group of people who love newspaper, doughnuts and terrible puns just as much as she does. This year, she looks forward to making more memories with her fellow staffers and using her tremendous editing power to boss people around! When she is not writing or struggling with page design, Griffin plays tennis, reads, sings in choir, talks to her plants, listens to music, watches movies and spends time in nature.
