Dylan Jahnke, Editor-in-Chief

I’m Dylan Jahnke, and this is my second year with 42Fifty, which I first joined as a staff member. I am a senior at Oswego High School, and I plan to study mass communications/music management in college. I hope to one day have my own radio talk show or get into artist management.

I am humbled to say I began my 42Fifty career my junior year as a staff writer, then Arts & Entertainment editor first semester of my senior year and now Editor-in-Chief.

Don’t get me wrong, December and the so-called “winter” break we had could be much worse. We had temperatures in the upper 40s and even a...
