Evie Barnard, co-editor-in-chief

This is senior Evie Barnard’s third year on the Shield’s staff, and as a result, she has been able to rise to the position of being one of the two chief editors on the newspaper, giving her oversight over nearly every aspect of its production. She’s coming off of a productive Summer, where she balanced multiple jobs and journalistic duties. She only held onto a gig at a roller skating rink, opening up her schedule for more academic activities. Her favorite book is Jon Krakower’s Into Thin Air, where a journalist recounts the terrors he and his friends underwent on a trek up Mount Everest.
