Greyson Martinescu, News Editor

Greyson Martinescu is a Senior at DGS and a News Editor in his second year on the Blueprint. At DGS Martinescu has played on the football team and has participated in Operation Snowball twice. Since his freshman year, he has run sprints for the track and field team.

Martinescu attended the 2019 SkillsUSA competition for 3D design and animation in Springfield, Ill. At the competition, Martinescu and his partner worked on a prolonged project to earn sixth place in the high school division.

During summer break, Martinescu travels to Romania because his whole family was born and raised there. He spends time with them swimming in the Black Sea, relaxing on the beach, and driving the twisting roads around the Carpathian Mountains. 2019 has marked the sixth time he has been to Romania.

Martinescu is still deciding on colleges and hopes to study in an aviation-related field.
