Andrew Pfeifer, Staff Writer

I have been an edition to journalism ever since my junior year. I have been involved in numerous sports writing and broadcasting providing quality information to the student body. I was a part of the Pawprint newspaper staff and was involved in the transition over to the Catalyst. I have written multiple stories for print copies as well as online publishing. My strong suite is sports writing and the ability to capture in-depth action on and off the field. I also write and broadcast restaurant reviews in the metro area. I am very excited to be a part of the staff this year and can’t wait to put my best stuff out there. Journalism became a passion and is something I want to continue with beyond high school.
