Chris Henkel ’14
I'm Chris Henkel, I'm a writer, and co-editor for Elder High School's school paper - both print and online. In general, I'm a guy that likes to be outside. If I get the opportunity, I just might end up in a treetop paradise in the middle of nowhere - living off the woods. Along with fishing, climbing, and hiking, my friends and I go frisbee golfing weekly. I've come to be known for my interest in Bigfoot and UFO's, after spending much of my time researching and writing about the topics. A digital/artistic forte' of mine is the ability to go eight hours a day on Photoshop, turning out whatever my mind might come up with that day. I have little clue what I'll be doing in the future, but the Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University is my only pursuit at this point.
