Sam Bull
The 2020-2021 school year will mark senior Sam Bull’s third year on staff and second year as an Editor-in-Chief. Apart from the Omega, Sam is a member of NHS and Student Advisory Council, serves as the student representative for the District 99 Board of Education, and captains both his high school and club soccer teams. Sam also enjoys playing FIFA, reading the news, driving around in search of frisbee golf courses, diving deep into the exploration of movies and music, and, most of all, trying to comprehend YouTube videos of Neil DeGrasse Tyson talking about the universe. You can contact Sam via his school email ([email protected]) or his barely-existent Twitter (@sbull991).
