Who We Are

Who We Are: The Lancer Link was formed originally in 2008 as a blog with a very small staff and limited content. Over the years, we have grown into a student-run staff comprised of nearly 50 members; including writers, artists, photographers, and a multimedia team. The staff ranges from freshman to seniors, and represents the voices of students from a variety of interests. Varsity athletes, band members, speech and debaters, thespians, and musicians all unite within this team, woven together by their dedication to producing meaningful, impactful, high-quality journalism.
