About the Contributor
My name is Shay Burns. I am a sophomore at PCM high school. This is my first year in journalism. I joined this class because it seems like a fun class to be in. It forces me to try new things. I play football, basketball, and baseball. I like to spend time with friends and family. I am excited to be in this class this year.
