Ingrid Smith, co-online managing editor, co-news editor

This is junior Ingrid Smith’s second year on the Shield staff and third year in the MacJ program. This year, Ingrid joins the editorial staff as co-news-editor and co-online-managing-editor. Her favorite stories to write take important issues and localize them through the lens of high schoolers and she appreciates the opportunity to use the newspaper platform to tell people’s stories. Outside of newspaper, Ingrid is a violinist here at McCallum, a fiddle player, and a cat lover. After school, you can find her listening to country music and making plans to eventually become a billionaire. This year, she hopes to use her new positions on the editorial staff to improve her leadership and writing skills and explore her own writing style as a journalist.

Naturally, they’re really shy, but they get to open up through the experience of role-playing games. They get to be whoever they want.¨
