About the Contributor
My name is Rylee Parsons and I’m a sophomore here at PCM. I’ve participated in softball for 10 years, Journalism for 1 year, student government for 1 year, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes for 1 year. I joined Journalism because I wanted to be more involved in things going on in my community. I’m excited to cover different things from sports to just silly questions to know my peers better.
