The Forest Scout

Katie Pierce
Katie Pierce is a proud senior at Lake Forest High School. Besides being Editor-in-Chief of TFS, Katie is a drum major of the LFHS band, and spends most of her summer on bike trails as a camp counselor. She also founded and manages her own jazz ensemble, The Swing Sonatas, made up of LFHS musicians. Katie strongly prefers tea instead of coffee, and jazz in place of rap.
