Mackenzie Greco, Staff Writer

Hi, my name is Mackenzie Greco, and I am a staff writer for the News section of The Evanstonian. I am a senior, and this is my third year writing for the paper. I write for The Evanstonian because it allows me to learn new things about the people and community of ETHS and Evanston. I am also a part of the ambassador program, swim team, and lacrosse team. Outside of school I like to read, hangout with friends, and relax!
