Silas Spears, Page Editor

Silas Spears is a junior at Harrisonburg High School and is a Page Editor for the Newsstreak. Normally, Silas runs cross country in the fall, indoor track in the winter and outdoor track and field in the spring. Fortunately, this year Silas decided to take a break from the cross country team and its toxic environment. But he will continue to participate on the indoor and outdoor track teams, running the 400 meter race as well as doing the triple and long jump. When not running, Silas likes to hang out with friends and work at Urgie's Cheesesteaks. He really enjoys watching Netflix and its many originals. Since quarantine Silas has found a more introverted side of himself and likes to spend time alone with himself. In the future Silas can see himself in the medical field doing whatever career suits him. Other than that Silas does not really have plans and is willing to just go with the flow of life.
