The Tower

Sierra Weaver, Editor-in-Chief

Sierra Weaver, a senior at John Adams, is the Editor-in-Chief of The Tower. She has been a part of The Tower since she was a freshman, and looks forward to continuing her involvement and taking on her new role as Editor. During her freshman year, The Tower had not yet established a website and was still entirely relying on printing as a way to publish stories, so it has been extremely exciting for Sierra to watch the online presence of The Tower grow over the past few years.
Sierra started as the film critic to the paper but has since expanded to cover a variety of other topics that interest her. Some of her favorite articles to write are centered around the criminal justice system and its issues, though she has also picked up several articles centered around events at John Adams, general news, and pop culture.
Sierra is a full IB student who has worked to focus her classes around writing. She hopes to pursue a career in film in the future, so she can tell stories through a more visual medium. In addition to writing for the newspaper, Sierra participates in many other school organizations. She has been a member of Mock Trial, Model UN, and Student Government for all four years of high school. For the last two years, she has taken up the role of president of Model UN and vice president of Student Government. All of her experiences in these clubs have allowed her to become more outgoing and open to meeting new people.
In her free time, Sierra can be found watching movies, listening to music, and spending time with her friends. She believes it is important to find a balance between her school work and her social life that allows her to never need to sacrifice one for the other. As her mother says, “Sierra knows how to laugh and be silly, but she knows when she has to be serious to get the task done- she has high expectations for herself, but is comfortable with who she is.”
