Dana Ibarra, News Editor-West

Hello! My name is Dana Ibarra, I am a senior at Elkhart West, and this is my third year in student publications. I write mainly news and opinion stories! I've always loved reading and writing, so that’s all I ever do. Outside of school, I do color guard and winter guard, I spin both rifle and sabre on the weapon line!
