The Shield Online

Alex Dowd
The 2019-2020 school year marks senior Alex Dowd's second year both on The Shield staff and at McCallum. This year she was given the position of A&E editor and copy editor due to her immense passion for inserting her opinion into nearly every situation. Alex's greatest challenge in journalism is remaining objective, but thanks to Mr. Winter's guidance she's really improving. When she isn't writing for The Shield, Alex enjoys arguing, questioning authority and baking. In the future, Alex plans to continue with journalism and maybe gather a few more cats along the way, but for now, she is doing her best. Viva la resistance!
