Jared Sagoff, a Silver Chips Managing News Editor, was born on April 17, 1985. However, a possibly more significant moment occurred when he was selected to the Silver Chips staff for this, his senior year, two springs ago. Jared is proud to serve on the greatest newspaper in the state of Maryland of his success as a member the Blair It's Academic team (we even get cheerleaders). After this year, he hopes to move to Iowa and eat fresh fish. Unfortunately, these are mutually exclusive.
