The Trapeze

Sarah Lipo
Sarah Lipo, a senior at Oak Park River Forest High School, is one of only nine editors for Trapeze. But despite being one of the elite few to oversee the production of OPRF’s esteemed newspaper, Sarah shares a lot in common with her non-journalist peers. She was born and raised in Oak Park, as was her mother, who also attended OPRF. She runs track, cross country, and even volunteers with the Hepzibah Huskies.

The beginning of her career in the newspaper started her sophomore year, when she took AJ British Literature, the english class that acts as a prerequisite to Trapeze. Her junior year was the first year that she was officially on the newspaper. Sarah said, “The first article I did, an article about Tasty Dog closing, on the back page of the September issue.” As an editor, Sarah works to oversee the junior writers, working as both a mentor and a boss

Since then, Sarah has moved on to become an editor. When asked about whether or not she was interested in pursuing a career in journalism, Sarah said, “Ultimately, I want to do journalism, or at least write.”
