Morgan Viesselman, Sports Editor

     Hi, my name is Morgan Viesselman and I am a senior at Foran. I am the senior sports editor for the Mane Street Mirror and I have been a staff writer for the past 2 years. I enjoy writing articles about Foran’s athletes and sports teams along with local businesses in Milford. I play both volleyball and softball here at Foran. I love listening to music and playing with my dog.
