An illustration of Miranda Phinney by Pearl McNames.

Most likely to become the next great philosopher.

This has been Miranda’s first year on the staff of the Post. Though they try to alternate which section they write for, their favorites are Forum and Feature, which best suit their preferred longer, essay-style articles. Aside from the Post, their favorite classes have been AP Calculus BC and AP English Literature, interests that they hope to pursue further in college. When they’re not working on schoolwork or their articles for the Post, Miranda can be found reading or discussing stories of any form at length with friends. This fall, Miranda will be attending the University of California, Davis with plans to major in either physics or math, with a minor in English.
