Paul Szmanda
Paul Szmanda is a junior at DGS and an Online Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Blueprint.  This is his first year on the official Blueprint staff, but he has freelanced for the publication for the past two years.  Szmanda is also a varsity member on the DGS Speech Team, the Secretary of Politics Club, and a member of the Student Council.  In the spring, he runs sprints and hurdles on the Track & Field team.

In addition to English, Szmanda is fluent in Polish.  Over the summer Szmanda visited his family in Poland for the tenth time, also visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau and hiking in the Tatra mountains with his uncle.

In his free time, Szmanda enjoys riding his bike, having a personal record of 70 miles in one day.  In addition he has a hobby of fishkeeping, tending to his two saltwater and freshwater aquaria. Szmanda also volunteers at the West Suburban Community Pantry on Saturdays.

Szmanda is still deciding on colleges.  He wants to major in communications- and politics-related topics.
