Syd Pierre

May 19, 2020

Outgoing print editor Syd Pierre will be attending Ithaca College in New York with a full ride through the Park Scholar Program. A tenacious and driven writer, Syd plans to major in Journalism and write for the student newspaper at Ithaca; she also hopes to explore other forms of journalism, such as long-form articles or documentary studies, and eventually write for a larger publication. Formerly a hockey player for nine years, one of Syd’s most memorable articles is a piece she wrote about the 2019 Girls’ Hockey State Tournament, where she got to sit in the press box and observe. With her no-nonsense attitude, Syd has kept Zephyrus staff in line for the last year. She’s been the backbone of the newspaper, ensuring that issues get out to the student body, and it has been a privilege for Zephyrus to have her as a writer, page editor, and print editor. 

Beyond Zephyrus, Syd has had a great experience at EHS; some of her favorite classes have been AP Environmental Science, Film Photography, and Creative Writing. The “boring” lessons she’s taken away are about time management and responsibility, but Syd has also learned about maintaining friendships while staying true to your own interests. For current EHS students, Syd’s advice is to stay true to yourself and to trust the process for finding your passions. She would like to give a shout out to former Zephyrus advisor Sarah Burgess and current Zephyrus advisor Daniel Amborn for their part in her writing journey. As for the future of Zephyrus, Syd is confident that next year’s editorial board will be a success.
