U-High Midway

Berk Oto
I joined the U-High Midway staff as a freshman with the Beginning Journalism program in the 2018-19 school year. I have been promoted to an assistant editor since then. I enjoy learning and collaborating with other Midway staff members. In addition to working for the Midway, I am also a member of the U-High debate team.

Awards: 2019 Illinois Journalism Education Association: Second place, best single-story package.
