The Southerner

Elise Sommers
My name is Elise Sommers, and I am the Editor-in-Chief at the Southerner. I am a senior at South. The teamwork of all of us contributing and working to produce each issue is by far my favorite part of newspaper! When I am not writing or editing articles, I love doing theater and having tea parties. Fun fact: I have 51 cousins!
