The Hilltopper

Maggie Schroeder
Maggie Schroeder is a fourth year journalism student and also the editor of The Highlander yearbook for her second year running. She first joined journalism as a freshman after wanting to take ceramics, realizing it had a prerequisite, knowing her artistic ability would fail her for said prerequisite, and settling on the "second best" option. She's now realized that "second best" option was the best option all along and enjoys spending her days on the Hilltopper and Highlander staff editing proofs, silently cursing out glitchy Monarch InDesign, conducting interviews, frantically typing away at stories, and snapping photos at various school events.

Outside of her passion for journalism, Maggie is known as both a "runner" and a "horse girl," both titles of which she would prefer to not have (one due to the pain, one due to the meme) but has grown to accept and love. In her free time, it's just a little bit obvious that she'll be found either... running or riding horses... but she also enjoys attempting to cook, watching hours of worthlessly pleasurable TikToks, hanging with her friends (read: Haley), and contemplating the meaning of life on her roof at 2 AM while blasting girl in red.

Although this year is Maggie's last year at Highlands, she's hoping to make it her best both in journalism and out. After high school Maggie plans to go to college (currently undecided as to where) for either pre-medicine or pre-veterinary medicine and just might end up competing in track and cross country wherever she goes.
