Jack Fedor

I am Jack Fedor, a sophomore at NP3 High and this is my second year that I will be on the Pacifc Times team. I will try to get the same quality of an article as I had before the COVID-19 pandemic arrived while the Pacific Times is working digitally. I do many different activities at the school and hope that assists myself and you the reader in getting accurate and full information in each article. If one of you readers has any recommendation for an article or feature for the Pacifc Times, then comment on an article. I hope you enjoy the articles that myself and our team at the Pacific Times produce.
