Hello! My name is Katherine Merkel, and I am currently a junior here at OPHS. This is my first year with The Voice, and I’m very excited to be be part of such an awesome student organization. My position is News and Opinion Editor because I believe that being informed is extremely important. I am involved in many other clubs including Masterminds and Model UN. Keeping students and teachers informed about important information and current events is crucial to the growth and development of Orchard Park as a community, and I’m happy to have such a significant role in doing so. I’m looking forward to a great year with the Voice!
