Jules Conners, Editor-in-Chief

This year, Jules Conners is an editor-in-chief of The Owl and a junior at Boulder High School. While not writing scathing and scandalous articles about composting, Jules spends the majority of her time on the basketball court playing alongside her all-star teammates. Jules participates in technical theater and is Head of Front of House for Troupe 60. She spends the rest of her free time creating art galleries for the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. Jules has changed so much over her past two years at Boulder High; most notably, she now prefers green grapes over red ones. As her second year at The Owl kicks off, Jules’ biggest goal is to positively impact the Boulder High Community through her writing.
