2018 Staff Spotlight - Will Margulis

Getting through the school year has been the main priority, but lately I’ve been doing a lot of cool rowing events. I just went to cj’s, a regatta in Sacramento, and qualified for semifinals, which is pretty good for my school. I also went to scholastics in San Diego and got two gold medals there. Other than rowing, this year I participated in mock trial which was a really cool experience. It was interesting to learn about the justice system and get a little acting in at the same time.

I’m a junior in at Oakland (CA) Tech High School so I’ve been looking at colleges recently. I’m hoping to major in either computer science or sports journalism, so Wash U and American have emerged to become some of my favorite possibilities so far.
