Maxwell Rhoads

Maxwell Rhoads, Staff Reporter

My name is Maxwell Rhoads and I am a senior at Dunbar. This is my second year working on the PLD lamplighter staff. I hope to write lots of articles this year on things ranging from student opinions to satire. Last year I wrote an article about the Lit Mag submissions and helped create a segment on the Dungeons and Dragons club.

My hobbies include studying biology, reading, and playing board and video games. I also enjoy listening to music.
