Jane Lavea
Jane Lavea joined The Pinion in her sophomore year. She was relieved that McKinley had a newswriting class because her old school did not. Writing is her passion. She was always told by her language art teachers that writing was something she was good at so newswriting seemed interesting.

When she first joined the class, she though that it would be easygoing but it was far from that. It was challenging and if she wanted her writing in the paper, she would have to step up her game. She joined this class because it would determine if she was capable enough to write in college.

Lavea said, "There is nothing better then telling a story on paper."
