Michael Shaw's Profile
Writing has been a passion of Michael's since the fourth grade when he founded his parochial school's first newspaper. While his paper was shut down in a matter of weeks (freedom of the press wasn't an inalienable right at St. Paul School), his interest in writing continued, leading him to write for his high school newspaper as well as the Jefferson County (Mo.) News-Leader.
A sportswriter for the Columbia Missourian in the spring of 2013, Michael covered Tolton Catholic and Stephens College athletics. He is from Fenton, Mo., and is an avid tennis player.
