Sonia Yost
Hey there stranger! My name is Sonia Yost, and this will be my third year writing for the newspaper. Last year I was an associate editor and this is a role that I'll be playing again this year and I'm thrilled to see what the staff is going to produce this year. I’m pretty involved in the school as I am a member of the drama club, scholastic scrimmage team, foreign language club, speech league, NHS, mock trial, youth and government, PJAS, yearbook and swim team. Outside of school, I work at Taco Bell, and enjoy bike riding, watching movies. I am also a philatelist (stamp collector). After graduating, I'll most likely be attending Slippery Rock University because of a family discount. I would like to become a high school English teacher in Oregon. I've always wanted to move to Oregon and live in the woods. I think you've learned enough about me now. See ya! :)
