About the Contributor
Taylor Potter, Co-editor in chief
As a singer, he’s horrible. As a dancer, he nauseating. As a journalist, he’s one of the three co-editors in chief. Senior Taylor Potter is entering his third year of writing for the Tiger Times, and his second year of bossing around younger staff members. He is a member of NHS, Quill and Scroll and is a 2013 Al Neuharth Free Spirit Scholar. While his singing, dancing, acting, fighting, whistling, snapping and gymnastics skills are mediocre, his ability to write and speak in a Batman voice is unmatched.
