Max Garfinkel, Business Manager

I first joined the U-High Midway staff as a freshman in the Beginning Journalism program. Since then I have served as a reporter and am now business manager. My favorite part of journalism is working with the team and reporting on interesting stories. My best story was a review of the last season of “Game of Thrones.” In addition to working for the Midway, I am also involved the track and soccer teams. In my free time I enjoy cooking and fishing.
