The Octagon

Quin LaComb
Senior Quin LaComb is perpetually tired and, therefore, is quite the coffee and tea enthusiast. In his free time he enjoys gaming, perusing the internet, hunting and procrastinating. At school, his favorite subjects are math and science, but writing for English and the Octagon have quickly become fun for him. He looks forward to going to college next year and is hoping to go into engineering (although he doesn’t know what kind yet). Contact at qlacomb17@scdsstudent.org
