Annie Rogula, co-editor-in-chief

Hi! I'm Annie Rogula, and this year I am a co-editor-in-chief for The Oracle which means I help run the paper! I have been on The Oracle since my freshman year, and along the way I have been an asst. features editor, and the sports editor. Outside of my involvement on the paper, I am a devoted member of Interact Club and a varsity tennis player. Fun Fact: I was the number one doubles conference champion two years in a row on the team.
