Payton Coulter, Business-Editor-In-Chief

My name is Payton Coulter and I am a senior at Dunbar. I am one of PLD Lamplighter's Editors-In-Chiefs, and I'm in charge of the PR, HR, and Business teams. I joined my sophomore year of high school wanting to learn more about what is going on in our country to share with others. I have written articles, filmed, and edited videos. 

As an EIC this year, I want staff reporters and editors to work together in a comfortable environment where they enjoy producing content, while communicating more. I want Lamplighter to be known in many communities.

Outside of Lamplighter, I play softball and golf for Dunbar. I am a part of Dunbar's National Honors Society.

I hope you enjoy all of what Lamplighter produces, and I am so excited to be one of your EIC's this year!
