Frances Mackinnon
Frances Mackinnon is a senior and this is her fourth year on staff. She is so excited to be apart of this amazing team, and is pumped for what's in store this year. When she's not in room 405 she enjoys organizing books by color, debating, cross stitching powerful women and making an abundance of strange noises (and occasionally songs). She considers herself a grade A internet stalker and a true grandma at heart. After high school she hopes to pursue her dreams of being the proud owner of a personal library.
