Renee Park


Name: Renee Park
Position: Page Editor
Graduation Year: 2005
Renee is a senior in the Magnet Program (finally!) and is psyched about a brand new year of Chips, Chips and more Chips! She's currently wondering why she took MathPhys with Silver Chips and how soon she'll die, but meanwhile, Renee's enjoying writing, reading, studying (or not), and procrastinating! She's a fan of LaTeX (no, not that kind, nasty mind) and eugenics. In addition to being Managing News Editor and Production Manager for Silver Chips, Renee is also the co-captain for the Math Team and Physics Team this year (yikes! What a dork!) As for Renee's one secret desire? To be taller than her current height (without shoes).
