(she/her)

Francie Wilhelm is a sophomore and looking forward to her first year on​​ The Shield and second year with MacJ. She hopes to learn as much as she can about reporting and writing from both the fantastic Mr. Winter and her fellow newspaper staff members. Outside of writing and journalism, she enjoys binge-watching unnecessarily long animated TV shows, blaming all her problems on her moon sign, and making hyper-specific playlists for herself and her friends. After spending her freshman year (mostly) online, she’s thrilled to be a part of The Shield and experience the community and school year in person.

Principal Griffith at the first Spectrum meeting of the year. Club leaders Caytie Brown and Ceder Herring invited Griffith to a meeting so she could share her story as an LGBTQ+ person. Having the support from Griffith has allowed Spectrum to facilitate more open discussions. I feel  like other schools would be weirded out,  Brown said. Like, The principals telling a story?  But I think Mac culture is pretty accepting.

A safe space for all
