Kyra Bergerud, the outgoing administrative coordinator, avid opinion and head-to-head writer, and future Minnesota Golden Gopher, has found her time on Zephyrus to be invaluable. “One of my favorite things about Zeph has been the ability to find my voice and have a platform to discuss issues that are important to me,” she said. Kyra has used both her voice and platform to their full potential through her articles that send a powerful, important message. Her impact on Zephyrus is most visible through the opinion and head-to-head sections she’s taken under her belt.
Throughout her time at EHS, she’s pursued her passions even further as captain of the Edina Policy Debate team and member of the speech team. Above all, what Kyra will miss most about Zephyrus is the people, especially the senior class that the paper has brought together over the years. “I think that the lessons you learn from working in a tight knit group like Zephyrus carry through to a lot of aspects of life,” she said. While Kyra values the Zeph community, it’s no doubt the community values her even more, for her friendly demeanour and skill as a writer. Always impressed by her kindness and passion, our Zephyrus family (and the opinion section!) is sad to see her go, but has no doubt she will continue doing great things! We wish her the best time in college.
