In addition to Theogony, she holds leadership positions in the Garden Club, Asian and Pacific Islander Student Union, Watershed Warriors, Bee Club, and multiple service-based organizations.

Zoe Sermons, a rising senior, will serve as Features co-editor. She joined the Theogony staff during the 2022-2023 school year. Outside of Theogony, she is involved in lacrosse, Best Buddies, the Black Student Union, and the Marine Conservation Club. Zoe is excited about her first year as an editor and eager to learn new journalism-related skills.
