Solly has served as the Copy Editor, Assistant Editor-in-Chief, and now EIC during her time at Tuscarora on The Husky Headline staff. She was selected as the Virginia representative to the Free Spirit Journalism Conference sponsored by the Newseum in 2013, and has won various other awards on the school and local level for her writing and design skills. During her time as an editor, the student newspaper has been recognized as a VHSL First Place award-winning publication.
