Elise Johnson, Arts and Entertainment Editor

Elise Johnson is a senior at Pleasant Valley High School, and currently counting down the days until graduation. In her near future, she will be attending the University of Iowa as a biology and chemistry student on the pre-med track in hopes to one day reach her lifelong goal of being a dermatologist. As she waits to pursue her dream job, she focuses on her other passion in life: music. Elise has played the tenor saxophone for 7 years, and has recently become a drum major for the Spartan Marching Band. She also played the viola in 4th grade, but was forced to quit when her mother told her to choose between orchestra and band. She hopes to one day avenge that moment in her life by relearning the viola in college and becoming the violist she always dreamt of being as a 4th grader. Some of her other goals for the future are to learn fluent Japanese, join the rowing team, and one day move far into the mountains where she can fulfil a life of peace and simplicity.
