Ryan Shelton
Hello!  My name is Ryan Shelton and I am a senior at Nimitz High School. I have worked with the newspaper for two years now. Beginning as a writer my junior year, I am now the Managing Editor of Sword and Shield as well as a contributing writer. I love journalism and plan to pursue journalism as my major at the University of Texas at Austin along with a Radio-Television-Film major. My favorite part of working with the Sword and Shield newspaper is investigating stories and being able to express myself and my experiences through the articles and editorials I write. I plan on becoming either an investigative journalist or professional screenwriter in the future.  My favorite writer of all time is Jack London, and my favorite book is Call of the Wild by London. My favorite movie is Good Will Hunting, and is what inspired me to pursue television and film. Besides being the Managing Editor of the Sword and Shield, I am also the Clerk of the Drama Club and a member of the Academic Decathlon team at Nimitz. I hope you learn something new from each and every article I writes, and that you enjoy reading the Sword and Shield!
