Austin Ikard, Digital Co-Editor-in-Chief

Hello! My name is Austin Ikard, and I am a senior. Recently, I have spent lots of my time working on videos.  I have been making sports edits for different teams, taking videos of the outdoor landscape, creating short films for people, and hopefully, soon I will have the opportunity to take videos for professional athletes! I am one of the Co-Editors-in-Chief this year and look forward to helping others learn many multimedia components, managing the website, and making the most of my last year in high school!
