Colin Dodd

Colin Dodd, Print Opinions Editor

Colin Dodd is a junior at DGS and is the Print Opinions Editor for the Blueprint. This is Dodd’s first year on Blueprint, but he was a club member his sophomore year. Dodd has competed in multiple creative writing contests and has one short story published. At DGS, he is involved in German Club and PRISM.

Dodd aims to go to University of Texas at Austin to major in creative writing or journalism and possibly get a teaching degree. During free time he will either continue attempting to finish his book--either reading or writing--or play with his little brother. His hero is the author Terry Pratchett.

He attempts to volunteer when not busy babysitting his brother. The most prominent volunteering he did was being part of the crew that restored the gardens in front of Eisenhower Junior High. Dodd also tutors his friends and neighbors whenever they have trouble with a subject.
