Brittney Wilson
Hello, my name is Brittney Wilson and this is my second  year on the newspaper staff. I am an avid listener and I love hearing people’s stories. I enjoy writing, reading and joking around with friends. I love mountains, big cities and colorful sunsets. I prefer to do just about everything outside, especially when I’m somewhere with pretty views. Colorado, Utah and Wyoming are some of my favorite places in the world (or what I’ve seen of it). I hope to someday travel and study different cultures.   

Brittney Wilson, Co-Editor
