Sasha Milbeck
Sasha Milbeck is the senior Editor-in-Chief of Highlander Publications. Sasha is a self-diagnosed fontaholic and could spend all day in Room 405 if she could. Last summer, Sasha represented the state of Wisconsin at the Al Neuharth Free Spirit and Journalism Conference. She is looking forward to applying her newly acquired journalistic skills to advocate for the protection of First Amendment rights for student journalists here at Homestead. In previous years, Sasha served as a co-Editor-in-Chief and copyeditor. Outside of journalism, you can find Sasha playing Homestead varsity tennis, volunteering, or spending time with her friends. Sasha is very excited for this year and can’t wait to see what’s to come for Highlander Publications.
