Teagan Garrison, Staff Reporter

I'm Teagan Garrison and I have been on Lamplighter for two years. I have been the Torch Podcast Editor for most of my time on staff, and can't wait to produce more fun and interesting episodes. While on staff, I have made countless episodes and written several articles. My favorites of which, being the Snackchat episodes and my article titled "Must Read Summer Books."

I'm a senior this year and I can't wait to use the skills Lamplighter has taught me in my future.
