The Lakeland Mirror

Danny Spatchek
Editor-in-Chief

Before he became editor, Danny Spatchek was a staff writer, sports editor, and managing editor of The Mirror. He’s written about sports games, student-athletes, Lakeland’s search for a new president, being a Randy Moss fan, the state’s budget battle, Esch Library, Chris Nolan Batman movies, the Wisconsin Tuition Grant, a flawed dunk contest, driven football players, and a student writer kicked off campus for partying too hard.
