On a typical school day, she can be seen walking down the halls of Skutt Catholic, hand outstretched, awaiting high-fives from passerby. Though widely known for her kindness and ability to strike up a conversation with just about anyone, not much else is known about the true colors of this particularly underappreciated student. This week, The Flightline was able to dig a little deeper into the personality of Elizabeth Howard, one of Skutt Catholic’s kindest sophomores.
