The Southerner

Madeline Mahoney
Madeline Mahoney is doing her job as the Managing editor to make sure the Southerner stays organized and doesn’t fall apart: she takes notes at meetings between editors and helps the editor in chief when necessary and also does plenty of things behind the scenes to make sure the Southerner is efficient as possible. This is Madeline’s second year as a member of the Southerner staff and third year at South. Madeline helps make sure the Southerner is seen by the world by running the instagram. She helps all the staff writers and editors get recognition for everything they write this way. Madeline joined the newspaper staff originally to improve her writing and she believes these qualities have improved.

Madeline is passionate about writing and her favorite types of stories to write are Opinions and Features. Madeline’s enjoyment of writing may have been inspired by books like the Poisonwood Bible and the absurdly popular Harry Potter series which she has read and re-read many times. Madline’s other passions are visible in the other groups shes a part of. Madeline is a member of the Green Tigers (a group in charge of making South ecologically friendly) as well as the HCEC (Health Career Exploration Club). Madeline clearly cares deeply for the health of the planet and the people on it and these values make her perfectly suited for her first year as Managing Editor of the South High Southerner.
