The Wilson Beacon

Margot Durfee
Margot is a senior who LOVES food. Nearing her fourth year with The Beacon, she’s written more food articles than she can count (restaurant reviews, alumni cafe profiles, top 5 bagels in Tenley… you name it). Unfortunately, her articles often lack food photos because she gets too excited and eats everything before she can take one (she’s working on it). When she is not caught in a hurricane at crew practice, she’s collaborating with writers and the Wilson community to make this the best edition yet!
