Holley Murray is ready to take her third year as a Raider Wire staff member by storm as a junior at North Forsyth High School! She enjoys eating chicken wings with her family, listening to all kinds of music, and binge-watching Criminal Minds. Not everything is fun and games though, and Holley also enjoys putting a lot of effort into her schoolwork while also maintaining a job at Esquire Cleaners. Moving forward into this year in journalism, she hopes to grow in her knowledge of journalistic writing while also cultivating meaningful relationships with her peers. Holley hopes that by putting her best foot forward now, she can open up limitless doors of opportunity in her future, perhaps by pursuing a career in journalism.
