Abigail Wheatley, Editor-in-Chief

My name is Abigail Wheatley and this is my third year with PLD Lamplighter. Journalism is my love and special education is my passion. I'm fortunate enough to have discovered my love and passion so early on in my life.

This year's Editorial Board is extremely talented and I'm excited to see what this year holds for us. I wouldn't have found my voice if it weren't for Mrs. Turner, so I'm grateful to have her in my life.

My time outside of Lamplighter is spent reading, writing, and listening to music.

Good things are coming this year.
