Inklings News

Jenna McNicholas
Jenna McNicholas ’15 is a charming girl with an equally stunning personality. She is both a good student and athlete, as well as a good friend and competitor. But finally she is the girl next door that you brag about going to school with. She has a drive that she not only uses towards her writing for Inklings, but also uses in her sport, lacrosse.

Now committed to Middlebury, she spent her summer on the field battling for a spot on both Middlebury’s lacrosse team as well as in their classes.
"The process was stressful so I am happy to get back to school for the start of my senior year,” said McNicholas.

Being on the varsity girls lacrosse team, she has a very limited amount of free time, yet she continues to add more to her plate by writing for Inklings.

When asked what made her want to write for Inklings, she said that it was due to her fellow peers and the witty and rather funny writing that is demonstrated in the opinion section. Which just so happens to be her favorite type of article to write.

“My favorite part of writing opinion pieces is being able to write my voice into the pieces as well as express her opinions in a place were it has a chance at influencing others,” McNicholas said.
