Carolyn was nominated by Charles M. Shryock, IV, student newspaper adviser at Bishop McNamara High School. Here’s what he had to say about the award winner:
Carolyn fought to take our journalism class as a 9th grader, even though the class was already full with upperclassmen. She was so terrific last year as a reporter that the staff encouraged her to be an editor this year, in 10th grade. As a writer, Carolyn is prolific, smart, and creative. Next month, one of our editors-in-chief will be away for a week, and Carolyn will temporarily take his place as copy editor. Next year, she will be an editor-in-chief for our student newspaper, and play a major role in guiding other students and shaping the focus of our publication.
