HiLite

Adhi Ramkumar
My name is Adhi Ramkumar, and I am currently a veteran staff member serving as a Perspectives (op/ed) Editor alongside Brian Zhang for the HiLite. I am looking forward to a great year on staff, ready with new ideas and goals for my section.


Last year, I served as one of 3 Web Content Editors, during which I worked extensively in and out of school both managing online content and improving the overall design of our website. Our efforts came to fruition last year when we received the Online Pacemaker Award, often called the "Pulitzer Prize of scholastic journalism." This position allowed me to learn so much information about the backend of websites and email management systems. Prior to that, I served as Copy Editor for the Entertainment section.


Being on HiLite has truly been a rewarding experience, by not only broadening my interests, but also inculcating within myself what our adviser calls "transferrable skills." I hope I am able to continue pursuing journalism beyond high school.


Outside of HiLite, you can find me playing piano, performing South Indian Carnatic classical music, participating in various clubs at CHS, and working on biophysics research at IUPUI. Else, I'm probably doing homework, reading, watching TV, or sleeping.
