To whomever readeth this bio, Tis I, Alexander Ganias: Illustrations Editor for the Bardvark.

I love sports, classical music, friends, family, and Castlevania. I play baseball, basketball, piano, and mandolin (kinda). I will write mainly on the school sports, but now I oversee what YOU submit in terms of comics and artwork. So submit away without fear!! Love you mom <3

Jayna Rohslau - News Editor

Jayna Rohslau is more than happy to be the Op-Ed editor for this year's Bardvark, and is excited to contribute as a member of the staff now in addition to being a writer. When she's not scribbling away in some notebook or scrambling to make her deadlines, Jayna finds enjoyment in reading, exhausting her wallet by buying clothes, and spending time thinking about how she's going to exhaust her wallet by buying aforementioned clothes. Tragically, since the school year's begun she hasn't had a lot of time for her hobbies and is already burdened by a ridiculous amount of homework(as well as the notorious unpredictability of the f train!). Which is BHSEC in a nutshell of course, so she really shouldn't be complaining. Oh well, at least now she has the 2019-2020 Bardvark to look forward to, and to distract her from the depressing reality of her everyday commute.
