Hello, and welcome to my profile! My name is Max Torem and I am a senior this year at Sycamore High School. This is my third year on staff and I am the News Section editor. As the editor of the news section, it is my duty to decide which stories to run based on timeliness, proximity, accuracy of information, and many other important factors. I also write a monthly column to be put in the print version of The Leaf. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do here and I love writing for a nationally awarded publication, but I also enjoy activities outside of the classroom. I have a passion for professional sports. My father, raised in Akron, Ohio, has raised me to be a fan of the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Cleveland Indians. Ever since I began showing interest in professional sports, he has taken me to many their home games. We try to make it up to Cleveland about three or four times a year. My desire to help others in need is another huge part of my life. I enjoy seeing other people succeed because I was able to help them. This is the exact reason why I enrolled myself to become a Fast Track Mentor. Fast Track is a program at SHS that allows people like me to help other students who are struggling with academics. The most rewarding part of Fast Track is by far the look on students’ faces when they see how good their grades are. S far as this year, I am excited to see which university I will attend after my high school career is over. Thank you for visiting my profile and please have a great rest of your day.
