Etched in Stone

Melissa May

Melissa May, a freshman, is excited to be going into her second semester of journalism. She is part of the Arts Beat within Etched In Stone. Thus far, May most enjoys writing reviews and Sabercat Stories.


Outside of journalism, May loves spending time with her friends, family, and her dogs. As her freshman year of high school is her first year in Colorado, May says she is “grateful for [her] smooth transition to the state and for the amazing friends that [she’s] grown close to.” Before moving to Fort Collins, May lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She feels that she has adapted well to the immense change of scenery and weather.


At home, May lives with her mom and dad while her older brother, Greg, attends the Air Force Academy for his freshman year in college. She also has three dogs named Lady, Buddy, and Minnie — both Lady and Minnie being named after Disney characters. She loves music despite not playing any instruments. Some of her favorite artists are Brockhampton, Frank Ocean, Conan Gray, Rex Orange County, and Tyler The Creator.
