Hi, I’m Reese and I’m a senior this year at Fauquier. This is my first year taking journalism and I’m excited to write for the Falconer! I am a part of the cross country and track and field team as I enjoy running and competing. Montana is my favorite place to be as I enjoy the scenery and hiking there. Every weekend I will be watching college football and the NFL.
