My name is Triston Green and I am a senior at Oswego High School. This is my second year being a part of the 42Fifty staff and I am so excited to see what is to come this school year! I am involved in many activities here at OHS, such as being a Panther Leader, a member of BSA, NEHS, and Band. Outside of school, I am a Crew Trainer at Oberweis, and I love to hang out with my family and friends.
