"The most deadly poison of our time is indifference" - Maximilian Kolbe

Hi! I'm Kelsey Byrd; a Managing Editor at www.MHSTheShield.com.  I'm a junior here at Memorial and have been a member of the Newspaper staff since freshman year. I absolutely love journalism, particularly when I can write feel-good feature stories or political pieces as a strong liberal and Democratic voice for the site. Besides writing, I am passionate about reading, movies (particularly Marvel), animals (go vegetarian!) and just being outside (when it isn’t dreadfully hot, that is). Thanks for reading a little bit about me!
