Olivia Lauter, Section Editor

Entering her junior year and third year on TRL, Olivia is more than excited to be the photo editor for the newspaper that gave her a second home. While Olivia may not be able to spend every available second she has in the photo studio this year, she’ll still make the most out of every moment. When she doesn’t have a camera strapped around her neck, Olivia spends all of her time either cheering for the Leopards, at her gym, Express Cheer, or driving around with her friends in her beloved dark blue Acura named Sheila. Olivia loves her TRL family, coffee, country music, Sky Ranch, and, of course, her “finsta” posts hashtags (#ultimatesistersavage and #livelovetrl). Olivia is, as always, looking forward to spending another year doing what she loves while growing the best friendships on TRL.
