Stephanie Jumper, Editor-in-Chief

Editor-In-Chief Stephanie Jumper dressed up as Daria from the ‘90s TV series “Daria” for Halloween every year of middle school, and she thinks that explains a lot about who she is as a person. She enjoys writing for the student newspaper to feel like she’s making some kind of mark on the world. Outside of the newsroom, Stephanie serves in various technical positions for the Tiger Theatre Company. Her other hobbies include expanding her wardrobe and wondering where the past 18 years have gone by. Stephanie hopes to develop her writing and reporting skills as much as possible since she is considering venturing into collegiate journalism next year.
