Sloan Scroggin, Broadcast Editor in Chief

Hello there. I’m Sloan Scroggin and this is my third year on staff and my first as the Editor-in-Chief of Broadcast. I have spent the past six years of my life creating videos and I now create them for PLD Lamplighter. This year I’m going to vigorously lead the staff right alongside them with all of my might. I want to guarantee that our reporting is crystal clear in delivering the stories that represent the community of Dunbar.

I enjoy creating videos and movies in my spare time. I am the youngest child of four and was raised here in Lexington. Other than Lamplighter, I am a part of the theatre program at Dunbar and I enjoy running. All in all, I have grown to love Lamplighter and the beliefs that this program holds. As my last year on this staff, I want to leave this place better than I found it.
