Senior James Mapes is re-joining The Red Ledger for his second year as a staff writer. When James is not writing, he is hanging out with his friends, driving his car down I-75 for no reason, feeling the breeze and blasting Juice WRLD at max volume, or he is playing video games intensely for hours on end. James’ family includes him, his three sisters, his parents and his two dogs–Bella, Sneakers and Biscuit. James is a loud mouthed but diligent worker. He listens to rap music, but at the same time he loves old classics like Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra or Bring it on home to me by Sam Cooke. Overall, James is excited to be writing for TRL again this year and hopes to make his last year of high school enjoyable.
