Jack Naehr, Sports Photography Editor

My name is Jack Naehr, I am 17 years old and I am a senior at Dunbar. This year will be my second year in Lamplighter and I will be working as one of the photo editors. I’ve worked on many news segments and articles while being on staff and will continue to this year. I love making videos that make people smile and I’m looking forward to a great year. This year I want to make the quality of sports coverage the best it has ever been and work on making lots of great segments to have continuously noteworthy broadcasts.
