Laura Conoly, Editor-In-Chief

Hey guys! First of all, thank you so much for visiting the Cat Talk website! My name is Laura Conoly, I am an IB Senior, and I am your Editor-in-Chief this year! I am also a third year staff member of the Cat Talk, so it is definitely very near and dear to my heart. Some of my pass times are being a part of Millbrook plays and musicals, reading, and going to football games. My favorite off-campus lunch spot is Rise and I have two dogs named Weezie and Elvis. I write the regular feature Creative Cats, which is a spotlight on a student involved in the arts. I hope you enjoy reading all the amazing articles you can find here on the Cat Talk website and come back very soon! Much love, bye!
