Staff Spotlight – Daniel Levine

My name is Daniel, and I’m currently a junior in high school at Francis W. Parker School in Chicago.  This summer will be my 8th summer at North Star and 2nd on staff.  At school, I’m the sports editor of my school’s newspaper and the captain of the tennis team. I’ve been playing doubles and hoping to make it to State this year! 
At camp, I’ll probably be at the tennis courts or over by waterskiing, which were my two favorite activities when I was a camper.  Looking forward to this summer!
