Jasper Haag, now a senior at Malden High School, is participating in The Blue & Gold for his second year as a head reporter. Even though he may consider himself to be a “jack of all trades, but master of none,” many would disagree. Haag is known for his academic intelligence along with his numerous leadership roles in many of Malden High’s clubs, including the Robotics and Computer Clubs, and being the head of the student-run Speech & Debate team. His interests include history and politics, and science and technology, making Haag a well-rounded individual. His free time is spent between reading textbooks and slacklining: a hobby similar to tightroping, except much more challenging due to the loose cord that is comparable to a rubber band. Haag is also an active Wikipedia and Reddit user, always looking to become more knowledgeable through reading forums. He fell in love with the idea of creative freedom, and being able to learn while gaining experience both in and out of the classroom. Recently, he was able to save up enough for parts to build his own computer, an accomplishment he is extremely proud of. Haag had to wait until his junior year to join The Blue & Gold, but always wanted to because he was interested in writing creatively opposed to academically. He hopes to end his final year at Malden High on a good note, and leave his mark on the school.
