U-High Midway

Abigail Slimmon
I first joined the U-High Midway staff as a freshman in the Beginning Journalism program. Since then I have served as a Midway reporter and assistant editor. My favorite part of journalism is that I get the chance to go out and talk to new people within the Lab community and the city. In addition to working for the Midway, I am also a member of the volleyball team. I love being outside and exploring new parts of Chicago.
