Danielle is my best friend

Danielle M Carlisi, Co-Editor-in-Chief

Hello, I'm Danielle Carlisi. I'm a senior. This is my third year in newspaper and I'm Co-Editor-in-Chief with my friend, Lauren Devereux. I enjoy writing which is why I've chosen to stay on staff for so long. Well, that and I love the people I've worked with and the memories I've made in this class. Some of my interests include Marvel, Star Wars and spinning flags with the marching band.
