Sophie Milner-Gorvine, Staff Writer

Hi! My name is Sophie Milner-Gorvine, and I am a staff writer for the In-Depth section. I'm a senior and this is my third year on staff. I write for The Evanstonian not only because I love writing, but I gain so much from working with other talented journalists. Outside of The Evanstonian, I do track and cross country, I am a member of the ETHS Community Service Club, I teach kindergarteners at Beth Emet, and I am the co-chair of the Reach Out and Read Teen Board. During my free time, I love to read, play guitar, make fun coffee drinks and run.

The new phone policy attempts to curb that addiction.

On Aug. 16, the doors of ETHS opened to a crowd of students awaiting busy hallways, friendly teachers and rows of desks. Two years ago, this picture could have evoked a multitude of emotions, but above all: normalcy. Now, these various components that complete a “normal” school day seem foreign.

A call for conscience: the layers of sexism at ETHS
