Olivia Wells, Staff Reporter

My name is Olivia Wells and I came to Lamplighter because I thought it would be fun and a really great learning experience. I am a senior and this is my third year in Lamplighter. I am a staff reporter and I hope to work in broadcast and possibly do some photography. I am on the golf team, love to sing, and I love acting. I have been in 9 musicals and was a lead role in 3 of them. I say Y'all a lot and I am a crazy person.

I hope you enjoy all the content I and the Lamplighter team produce!
