Kelly Jankowski, Video News Director

Kelly Jankowski is a senior at DGS and is the Video News Director. She was involved with the Blueprint club last year, but is excited to be working with the full team for the first time. With no previous journalistic writing experience, Jankowski is ready to learn what it takes to become a journalist.

At DGS, Jankowski is the trumpet section leader for the Marching Band and has been involved with the program all four years of high school. She has won numerous awards for trumpet performance. Jankowski is also an active member of pep band, pit orchestra, radio club, key club, NHS, and Snowball. Between school activities, she works her part-time job at the UPS Store.

In her free time, Jankowski enjoys producing and starring in videos on her YouTube channel. These short features mainly consist of music videos and parodies. After high school, she wants to attend college to become either a film editor or producer, fueled by her love for the industry. Jankowski’s top college picks include DePaul, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Indiana University-Bloomington.
