Brooke McKelvey
McKelvey spent the summer as the Assistant Camp Counselor at Tryon Creek. When she was younger, she went to camp there, and now she can volunteer there. “Those are my people,” McKelvey said. McKelvey enjoys spending time outdoors. She’s considering the pursuit of a career in chemistry or environmental science. During the school year, McKelvey participates in co-ed soccer, varsity softball and band. She started playing soccer 10 years ago and softball six years ago. “I like having a sense of being part of a team. You have to rely on each other.” In band, McKelvey plays the trumpet, which she began in seventh grade. “I didn’t enjoy choir or art, so I joined band,” McKelvey said. “Band feels like you’re just hanging out with your friends and getting better.” Going into freshman year, McKelvey joined journalism, and she’s taken journalism ever since. Now McKelvey is the People Section editor. “It’s cool to find something interesting about someone you see everyday.”
