Ruby Thornton, Reporter

Ruby Thornton is a 19 (almost 20) year old sophomore studying education. Her dream job is to either be a kindergarten or special education teacher because she adores kids and she is a kid at heart. Thornton has always had an interest in writing, but she has never really known where to start. She figured Crusader was a great place to learn. Her hobbies include crafting (when she has time), reading murder mystery books and watching videos about true crime or horror. Two fun facts about Thornton are that she knows a lot about famous serial killers and her middle name is spelled wrong on her social security card AND birth certificate.
