The Red Ledger

Savannah Whitmer
As a senior, this is Savannah Whitmer’s fourth and final year on The Red Ledger staff. Previously known to her devoted readers as The Only Human Ever To Be Stressed At Disney World, Miss Whitmer has spent many a semester launching herself into somewhat precarious situations all for the priceless reward of earning the titles of Staff Reporter and News Editor. Savannah is celebrated in the realm of high school journalism for her plentiful list of achievements, and is often approached by reliable news agencies seeking young reporters and good advice. The appeal of the snack cabinet and the wisdom of The Red Ledger’s editors, however, have thus far kept Miss Whitmer from moving on to bigger and better adventures. The adjacent articles are a testament to this reporter’s expertise on only the most riveting and sophisticated of issues, from the availability of the school elevator to textbook information to the weather outside. Miss Whitmer can be reached through her school-assigned email address, though she must be allowed 2 to 6 weeks for a response due to her time-consuming status as a distinguished journalist. Miss Whitmer is thrilled to be the most talented and extraordinary staff member on The Red Ledger for one more year.
