Carly Philpott, Editor-in-Chief

I'm a senior and this is my fourth and final year on staff – second as editor-in-chief. As a journalist, I hope to present factual news and information to the student body, parents, and faculty of Creek. You’ll see a lot from me about wildfires, local theatre, and political issues – and the Colorado Rockies, of whom I am a dedicated fan. I have a turtle, eight geckos, three snakes, three toads, a tarantula, and a multitude of fish and plants. Aside from journalism, I also like ecology, theatre, and French.

Students perceive each other in highly critical ways. 
This is only magnified when the person being observed is transgender. Sophomore Aram Bazarian sat with a trans pride flag for our cover in an all too familiar position. As a trans person at Creek, Bazarian often feels isolated from students around him, not only because of his identity, but also because of the possible hate he could experience for being himself. “Some [students] have never met a trans person before,” senior Karter LaBarre said. “So I sometimes have some educating to do.” Educating their peers is the tip of the iceberg for these trans students. Name-changes, basic respect, and deadnaming are all part of the trans experience.
