The Hawk

Kyla Taylor-Chief Editor
Kyla, a current senior, is both a Chief Editor and the Ads Manager for The Hawk. This year, she is the president of the National English Honor Society, a tutor at the Seahawk Writing Center, and a member of both NHS and Connections.

She is very passionate about the power of the written word, both in terms of journalism and in everyday instances. Kyla has loved reading since birth, but it was only when her enthusiastic third grade teacher saw potential in her to be a great writer that she began to love writing. She credits him for giving her the encouragement she needed to start writing. To this day, Kyla tries to find time for creative writing, though such a thing is very difficult.

This is her third semester in Newspaper Production, and she is looking forward to improving her media skills and journalistic writing skills, both of which will be essential to a successful college experience, as well as any future career she may choose.

Kyla will be an English major when she enters college (somewhere) in the fall of 2018, and she plans to also minor in marketing in order to use her writing and language skills to improve someone’s business while doing what she loves. Her eventual goal is to be a copy editor for a publishing company. Journalism may not be a major part of her future, but Kyla is looking forward to having this experience under her belt. One of her goals is also to bring relevant outside news stories to the student body and show them why these things matter to high school students, especially in today’s world.
