Cuyler Dunn, Co-Editor in Chief of The Budget

I am in my fourth and final year on staff, and am excited to take on the new challenge of leading The Budget staff as we uphold our standards of high-level and award-winning journalism. When not reporting and getting Mrs. Tholen coffee, I am a member of the varsity tennis team, varsity debate team, A cappella choir, chorale, concert band and the Marching Lions. Outside of school, I love to read, write, chill with my dog and play piano.
