Ellie McGhee is a junior at Durham Academy. Frequently, you will find her snooping around the lower level of the double-decker building. Ellie is a talkative person, who could just ramble on and on and on about her problems. At any given moment, someone has to talk, whether she’s talking to herself, or someone’s talking to her. It’s why tests and quizzes are so unbearable: people need to be able to talk during assessments! Her hobbies include hanging out with her friends and binge watching on Netflix. Ellie also enjoys pointing out flaws in professional works by saying commas are in the wrong spot. That being said, one would think she’d refrain from using so many! Ellie is someone who needs to be organized, otherwise her life would be in shambles all around her, which is why her planner is like a bible to her. She never goes anywhere without it. Along with her planner, she brings an eos lip balm with her wherever she goes. Her favorite flavor is honey dew, even though she doesn’t like the fruit. Ellie is an only child that would never, ever, ever want a sibling because her life is great how it is, and siblings cause unwanted problems. She has a dog named Molly that she’s had since she was three. Her parents feed Molly eggs for breakfast and small hamburgers (without the bun) for dinner. Ellie cannot wait to work for the paper this year.
