Mrs. Turner is the advisor for the Lamplighter. Though, more often than not, she is quite like a mother to us! When students can’t get along, she is quick to put out the fire and help people get back to work....

PLD Lamplighter is self-funded, so that means equipment and software purchases are based on fundraisers, advertising and donations. Because this is such an important part of what we are able to achieve, we have a full-time business manager each year. This year, it's senior Zach Jones. Not only does he organize fundraisers, he also helps us with inventory, fees, and he makes sure that all of our ...

These eight staff reporters look to her every week for direction and inspiration, and if you know Mercedes, you know that she's continuously cheery and typically unflappable. The week leading up to fall bre...

Senior Rebecca Chapman is this year's cartoonist at PLD Lamplighter. Rebecca, who plans to attend art school, had no idea that being our cartoonist would end up being one of her favorite things to do--in fact, some days she says it feels like she is either thinking of ideas, sketching them, coloring, uploading or editing them all the time! Like we always say, "Live, Love, Lamplighter." It'll...
