Give me a P! Give me an E! Give me a T-T-Y! We're Petty all the time. Get ready KEMPA SJW 2016, Team Petty (led by head cheerleader Sara Petty) is coming in hot, complete with their very own theme song.
First up on the squad is Alice Zheng, a senior from Brookfield Central High School. An Editor-in-Chief for Tyro newspaper, we'll be looking to Zheng to make sure our cheers are up to her grammar standards. While at camp she can be found in the Writer's Workshop, but in her free time she enjoys swimming competitively and playing her violin.
Another senior and Editor-in-Chief from Edgewood High School, Tia Parisi will also be participating in the Writer's Workshop. Parisi is a four-year member of The Wayfarer, her school's literary magazine. With a love for writing and ready to meet some new people, she hopes to work on her leadership skills and is an excellent addition to the team.
Coming in from Antioch Community High School, Kristina Esdale will be representing the Tom Tom newspaper for Team Petty this year. She started as the Advertising Director her sophomore year and will now be the Editor-in-Chief. The squad will be counting on Esdale to use her years of leadership and dance experience to take us to the next level.
With yet another EIC, it's looking like Team Petty is pretty stacked and we're not complaining. Brittney Meyer is a senior at Berlin High School and this will be her third year on the Red 'n' Green newspaper staff. She is the only member of our team that is enrolled in the photography class, which could prove useful when it comes to taking some team pictures.
