 WCbetty.jpgHi—my name is Betty Hurst! I grew up devoted to learning words and reading stories, so it wasn’t long before I developed a passion for writing.  I am currently majoring in English and History Education because I love words and learning the stories of the past. I love reading, writing, golfing, fishing, and discussing the impending zombie apocalypse.

WCtori.jpgHello! I am Tori Thoreson, and I'm currently a sophomore at Mayville State University. As of right now, I am undecided on my major, but I keep waffling between biology and medical laboratory science. My places of employment are the MSU Writing Center and Luther Memorial Home. While I'm not studying, working, or sleeping, you may find me working out or in cheerleading practice.
