Alex Taft

Writer

Alex Taft is a sophomore at Oak Hills. He can be seen running around the neighborhood with the Oak Hills Cross Country team in the hours after school. When not being baked alive in the sun, he’s usually crashed out or working at home. The most precious thing in the world to Alex is his pet ferret named Poka, who he can sometimes be seen walking/carrying around the neighborhood. Like a ferret, Alex also embodies the being of an energetic rodent. Alex is looking forward to writing for the Tartan, and will bring whatever ideas his rodent brain takes with him to the keyboard.
