Kate Metcalf is a White Station High School junior and is returning for her second year on staff for The Scroll. She plays soccer for both school and club and enjoys watching her favorite soccer team, Manchester City, beat Manchester United. Kate is president of the Spruce Up Sparta Club and the WSHS Bee Club, and she spends as much time as she can in the garden. Outside of school, she spends her time listening to music, playing with her dog, losing at WWF2 to her grandmother, and watching the Grizzlies with her family. She is extremely excited to be a part of The Scroll community and cannot wait for the new year!
