The Chant

Philip Wynne
Philip Wynne serves as a reporter for the Chant and is a senior. He was adopted from Guatemala as a baby and before living in Georgia, he  lived in New York until he was two.

Wynne enjoys turning the spotlight on others,  believing everyone has a story to share and is significant. When asked about Wynne,  Junior student Jacob Watkins said, “Philip is a hard working, yet outgoing person. He is a lot of fun to be around and is dedicated to success”. He decided to join journalism when his freshman Literature teacher, Ms. Patterson, told him he writes really well. Unfortunately, he could not join until junior year due to scheduling conflicts. Wynne joined the Chant because he wished to have his work published and over the past year, he can see improvement in his writing. He formed a strong friendship between the staff, especially Autumn and Melissa; he describes their friendship as “the three musketeers”, although other staff members may see them as “the Three Stooges.” Their friendship mainly includes humor and passion in their writings.

When he’s not writing or editing, he participates in national BMX competitions; he dream job is to become a professional competitor. He calls BMX racing his passion and dedicates all his spare time to the sport. Wynne works out two to three times a week in order to stay in shape for racing and practices at the track twice a week. He is also a member of North Cobb’s symphonic band. He is a percussionist and plays the marimba and snare drum. For the past year, he has worked at Taco Bell as a cook and cashier and enjoys interacting with customers and making them happy.

Although he is unsure what he will major in, Wynne is considering international law, journalism, and forensic science at Suny Maritime in New York or universities in California and Tennessee.
