Maddy Merritt, Editor in Chief

Hi, I’m Maddy Merritt! This will be my third year writing for theRock, and I can’t wait for both everything you have to say and for everything our staff hopes to bring to you this year! Outside of theRock, I am an intern writer for the Castle Pines Connection and love the opportunity it provides to connect our school to our community. I am incredibly passionate about medical sciences and hope to pursue a career in cardiology, but first, I want to make the most of this year and capture as many moments as we are able to have together. This year, my goal is to put as many student voices into our content as possible, writing about all of the different experiences we’re going to have. I hope to improve my photography and writing and to keep an open mind to see all that this year will hold.
