Lucia Rivera, Editor-in-Chief

I am a senior at Bonita Vista High and a fourth year staff member on the Crusader. I am now co-Editor in Chief, and previously was News Editor, Features Editor, and Editor-at-Large. This year I am continuing to follow my passion for finding compelling stories, designing engaging news packages and helping to teach other student journalists in our student-run publication. Outside of Newspaper I am part of several clubs on campus including Quiz Bowl, Junior Optimist, and Spanish Honor Society, along with being a volunteer at Sharp Hospital and an intern for the Vegetarian Resource Group.
