The Black & White

Katherine Sylvester
Grade: 11   Section/job: Opinion writer   Interests: Debate, piano, reading   Why did you join the Black & White?  I wanted to share information with people and change minds.   Why are you well suited to write/edit for your section or to perform your job? I’m on Whitman’s debate team, so I always enjoy researching and arguing a position. I do my best to see every side of each issue.
