Design Editor

Eli Demosthenes

Senior Eli Demosthenes has been design editor for two years. He is frequently consumed in homework and now wears a helmet while doing his work in order to avoid a hard blow to the head that would make him lose track of time. It is in the interest of safety. He also possesses a great ability to spot bears in the wild-quite a helpful trait.


Blake Anderson

Sophomore Blake Anderson is a first-year reporter for the Roar. He runs cross-country and his superpower would be Awesomeness, of course. He loses track of time by sleeping because you obviously can’t tell time in dreams. Anderson also loves listening to Notorious B.I.G. and being awkward.

She is also grand


Jack Gore

This is senior Jack Gore’s second year on staff. Gore is also involved the most impactful and important sport, ultimate frisbee. He wants to be able to speak to bumblebees and bumblebees exclusively. He possesses the unique talent to do simple addition and listen to coherent music. Gore also loses track of time by breaking clocks and losing watches.

Lupita Roman

This is junior Lupita Roman’s first year on staff. She is great at building furniture and loves to draw and paint. Roman plays soccer and listens to J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar to get ready for a game. She would want to possess super speed in order to beat everyone in a race.


Hannah Sanders

Following her older sister’s legacy, sophomore Hannah Sanders is in her first year on staff as a reporter. She is involved in ultimate frisbee, basketball, DECA, student council and KEY Club. Sanders wishes she had the power to fly because she would have unlimited freedom and could go anywhere she wanted. In her free time, she loves spending time with her sisters because they always find a way to have a good time together.


Olivia Graham

Sophomore Olivia Graham joined newspaper this year. Additionally, she runs cross-country and track. An ode to her love of running, Graham would like to have super speed to get places quickly. She grew up in San Diego, California, a far cry from the Colorado weather. She loves taking photos, spending time with her friends and family and listening to Florida Georgia Line.

Copy Editor

Ashlyn Moore

Ashlyn Moore is a junior on staff and this is her first year as a copy editor. Moore is very involved in the LHS color guard. She often finds herself lost in time when she’s practicing because she enjoys it so much. She also loves to write stories in her free time and listening to Ed Sheeran and Troye Sivan.


Josh Forbes

Josh Forbes is a senior and is in his second year as a reporter for the newspaper. Being a very theatrical and comedic fellow, he is involved in the Theater Company.  This stems from his love of talking to all people and learning about who they are. Forbes plans on minoring in Spanish in college to help him in communications, the career he hopes to pursue.


Zachary Maguire

Senior Zach Maguire is new to the staff this year. He also may be the captain of the boys soccer team and is a fantastic hula hooper. He loves history and would want to time travel to see all different time periods and places in the world. Maguire loses track of time watching Netflix or YouTube because as he puts it,”Once you start, you can’t stop and before you realize it, you’ve spent 6 hours watching shows and have not done an ounce of homework.”



Ethan Hanson

Ethan Hanson is a brand new sophomore on the staff. He happily is following in his brother Eric Hanson’s footsteps. Hanson’s love of music inspired his involvement in LHS, as he is in jazz band, concert band and pit orchestra. He is also an active member of the student council, garden club,  DECA, football and lacrosse. However, a super neat hidden talent and interest is slide whistling. Hanson’s clearly loves music, but his favorite is rock, specifically Weezer and The Police.


Sandra Hernandez Tobon

Senior Sandra Tobon is a new member on the staff. She is involved in FBLA, NHS, basketball and has played the violin for twelve years. Outside of school, she loses track of time painting her nails. Tobon wishes she had the ability to be invisible because it would be cool to sneak up on people without them noticing.
