Lucy Marco, co-online-editor-in-chief


In her senior year, Lucy Marco will be going into her third year on staff and her second year as co-online editor in chief. Lucy is excited to get things done this year and watch the newspaper team grow! In her free time, you can find her listening to music, going to thrift and antique stores, petting her cats, going on walks, lobbying and advocating for carbon fee and dividends, or curled into a ball of stress. She is feeling hopeful for the future and can’t wait to experience her senior year.
