Allie Tribe, Editor

I’m Allie Tribe, I'm a senior and this is my third and final year writing for The Journal. I take ballet classes at Wise Ballet and Music Academy and am the current editor of The Journal. I plan to attend the University of Missouri next fall to study journalism. I can't wait to tackle my last year as editor and to continue covering all things Decatur!
