Gabe Santos, A&E Editor

Gabe Santos is a sophomore at McHenry High School’s Upper Campus. Between drama club and dealing with his two younger siblings, he doesn’t have much free time, but what little time he has he spends  writing plays that he will probably never finish and listening to whatever music he can get his hands on. This is his first year on the Messenger’s staff.
