Doug Kyles, Editor-in-Chief

Doug Kyles knew he would be EIC someday from the first time he walked into the publication room. It's not necessarily because he's especially talented, but he does indeed enjoy the power. Doug is President/Captain/Officer/Editor of 5 clubs and organizations here at Texas High School, so talk to him if you're interested in joining Theatre, Debate, UIL Social Studies, or DECA. In his free time, he enjoys going on backpacking trips through Arkansas, working out, and meditating. Someday, he will be either a trauma surgeon at a rural hospital in Montana or a financial manager in New York City.
