Katie Birge, Yearbook Editor

Junior Katie Birge is a yearbook editor for The Javelin. “I love taking photos,” she said. She also enjoys the page design aspect of yearbook. “It’s cool watching the spreads come together.”

Birge is known for her fashion style. “I like to accessorize,” she said. “A lot of my jewelry is bright and colorful. I’d describe it as ‘fun.’” Birge’s accessories are an extension of her vivid personality. She describes herself as “an energetic leader” and her journalism colleague Nina Welter concurs. “Katie is very positive and easy to get along with.” Editor Taliya James said Birge “brings a lot of creative ideas to the table.” 

Birge learned to walk on her hands when she was about 10. It’s a skill she puts to use when her mother has just vacuumed and tells her not to get the floor dirty. In junior high, she developed an interest in music. She is in choir, show choir, and played the role of Marcy Park in the fall musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” “This was my first time having a main role.” The experience bonded her with her fellow cast members.
