About the Contributors
Madison Aboud
Madison Aboud, Associate Editor
My name is Madison Aboud and I am a sophomore at AAHS. This is my second year on Mountain Echo staff and my first year as an Associate Editor. In Jr. high, I was a reporter on the AAJHS Livewire. In my free time, you can find me reading or singing along to my favorite show-tunes. I’ve always had a passion for writing. My ultimate goal after high school is to become a professional journalist. Outside of Mountain Echo, I am in band, chorus, vocal ensemble, student council and Friends of Rachel. I strive to make sure students of AAHS are finding out everything they need to know within a timely manner. I can’t wait for another great year! 
Charlie Kephart
Charlie Kephart, Associate Editor
Hey everyone! My name is Charlie, I'm a junior and Associate Editor of the Mountain Echo. I was on the Livewire staff in Jr High and Mt Echo staff since 10th grade. I have had a passion for writing since 4th grade and even promised my 4th grade ELA teacher that I would publish a book some day. My main goals in life are to go into the medical field at Pitt. Whenever I am not at school, I enjoy watching Netflix, reading and hanging out with my boyfriend. I'm super excited to write stories to keep you guys updated on everything going on here at our school!
Jaidyn Palladini
Jaidyn Palladini, Editor in Chief
Hello, I'm Jaidyn, and I'm a senior at AAHS. This is my third year writing for the Mountain Echo. I am also an Editor in Chief this year! My favorite hobby is twirling, and I also do photography as a side job for family, friends, etc. A fun fact about me is that I work on the Production Team at the Altoona Curve where I take part in photography, videography, and graphics. Other than being on the staff, I am also very involved when it comes to school. I am involved in Majorettes, Chorus, Drama, and Vocal Ensemble. I found a passion for writing towards the end being in junior high and it has gotten me to where I am now. When I get older, I will be majoring in Digital Journalism and Media with a minor in Sports Studies and a certificate in Sports Journalism. I will be attending Penn State University when I graduate high school and I hope to twirl with the Blue Band. I'm looking forward to what this year has to bring to me, and I'm happy to keep you all updated on events going on here! Thanks for checking in! :)
