Daniel Lackey, Editor-in-chief

Hello, everyone! I'm senior Daniel Lackey, a second-year editor-in-chief, and even though this year is drastically different from what we have seen before, we're trying to make the most out of it. I can't believe senior year is here already, so as a last-year contributor to this publication, I would love to finish this year with a bang.
