Stav Nachum
A senior at Jefferson, Stav is in her third year of working on the newspaper staff. As News Editor, she oversees all news articles for both the print and online newspapers, designs the front page of the print newspaper every issue along with the second and third pages and oversees and trains new staffers in news article writing. In the past, Stav has served as Features Editor and Sports Editor.


Stav joined tjTODAY because she has a passion for writing, especially in a way that informs the community or expresses her opinion. She also wanted to participate in the graphic designing process that created each print newspaper.


Outside of journalism, Stav serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Threshold Literary Magazine, a Board Member for the Jefferson Writing Center, a multiple-award-winning member of the Model United Nations team, a coach for a volunteer organization that helps disabled children entitled The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer), a member of National Honor Society (NHS), a regular volunteer for TheRandomAct, a two time award winner of Bioengineering Projects for the Future (BPF) and a division one travel soccer player. After high school, Stav would like to pursue a career involving business and law.
