The Boiling Point

Rachel Lester
Rachel Lester, now a sophomore at USC, was on our staff starting freshman year, when she started as Staff Pollster and rose quickly to Chief Layout Editor and Features Editor, holding as many as three positions at one time.  From the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, she won the Boiling Point's first awards for design, and she continued to assist the Boiling Point even after graduation. While at Shalhevet, Rachel was commonly found in the Boiling Point office at midnight with a few other editors, and she was Editor-in-Chief of Yearbook and also participated in choir, softball, yearbook, ESC and EAC.

Rachel served as Managing Editor during the 2011-12 school year.
