The Rubicon

Ava Gallagher
Ava Gallagher is a senior at St. Paul Academy and Summit School. This is her second year on The Rubicon staff and she is looking forward to coming up with lots of creative cartoons to draw readers in. This year she is Chief Visual Editor! She plays volleyball as a setter and is getting ready to spread her wings and fly off to college. In her spare time she enjoys playing guitar, drawing and reading. She is seriously REALLY eager to draw some more cartoons and make some cool covers.
