Kendrick Sterling, Staff Writer

Hi! My name is Kendrick Sterling, and I am a junior at Seymour High School. This is my second year writing for The Owl. I enjoy writing about sports and events happening around the school. I play basketball and softball as well. My goal is to make the newspaper more well-known to the student body.
