The Eagle's Tale

Cortlyn Dees, Co-Editor-in-Chief
My name is Cortlyn Dees and this year I am Co-Editor-In-Chief of The Eagle’s Tale, alongside Kori Adair. I am a senior, and this is my second year as a varsity cheerleader. I am a member of National Honor Society, American Sign Language Honors Society, and the Quill and Scroll Honor Society. I am the historian for the Class of 2014. I am passionate about journalism and enjoy writing sports stories. I am attending the University of Arkansas next year and will major in broadcast journalism. I am in love with Pure Water tea. I am supportive by an amazing family and group of friends. I’m looking forward to a great senior year, and I will see you on the field… or court… or track!
