Jeannette becomes increasingly involved in the school newspaper and is promoted to editor-in-chief by her junior year of high school. As a result, she becomes more assertive and self-confident.... more outgoing. When Chuck Yeager visits Welch High School she is even permitted to conduct a one-on-one interview with him.
