The Grizzly Growl

Marissa McElreath

Marissa McElreath, Co-Editor In Chief

Marissa McElreath is a Junior at Copper Hills and a proud editor-in-chief of the Grizzly Growl. She performs for the Slam Poetry team and is a strong believer that everyone should attend at least one meeting. She loves slashers, Nick Rattigan, Bojack Horseman, Piercings, and getting weird stares from the old people in that one Smith’s off 90th. (Makes her giggle.) She currently makes a living from buttering popcorn for angry mothers and their many angry toddlers in Jordan Landing. She hopes to one day ditch the smell of popcorn and have a career in teaching US history to a whole bunch of high school students. Her big step towards such is hopefully attending Boise State. The reason she’s in Newspaper this year is because she got stuck with it last year and hasn’t made a big attempt to break for it quite yet. (I don’t know man, she just came back again.)
