The Journal Rewired

Emily Mertz

Emily Mertz, Online Managing Editor

Hi! I’m Emily Mertz and I am a senior this year. It’s hard to believe this is my third year on staff. Time has gone by so fast! I started as a Features Reporter and then last year I was the News Editor. This year I am thrilled to be the Online Managing Editor. I never expected to see myself in a leadership position but I am very grateful for the opportunity to grow. Other than The Journal, I’ve also been on the swim team since freshman year so I can pretty much always be found in either room 400 or at the pool. In the rare case that I have free time, I will most likely be spending time with my family or having a game night with friends. I would never say I have a favorite family member, but my favorite is my dog Bailey. I have one older brother who is now a junior at IU and studying finance. I, on the other hand, want absolutely nothing to do with finance or any kind of work involving numbers. That has led me to look at either being a teacher or working in the communications field. I’m excited and sad all at the same time for my final year at SHS and I know the work we produce this year will be nothing short of amazing.
