My name is Austin Sack and I have been a part of the Mountain Vista Media program for two years now, one year as a staff member and one as an editor.
I joined the media program sophomore year because I had always liked english in school and had an interest in writing. I took Mark Newton’s Intro to Journalism class and I was hooked and by the next year I was a staff member. Journalism is my passion and I plan on pursuing a career in journalism as a newscaster.
I have lived in Highlands Ranch practically my whole life until about six months ago, My family and I moved out to Larkspur, Colorado. I am currently open enrolling at Mountain Vista. I get the same question a lot about “why do you drive 45 minutes to come to school,” and one of the main reasons why is because of our media program. I love being at Vista and would never leave.
This is my third year on the ultimate frisbee team, first year on the rock climbing team and I also run track. In track I high jump, long jump and run the 200. If I had to pick my favorite sport I would pick ultimate because my brother got me hooked on playing the sport while he was in college.
My brother (Aj) is more to me than just a brother, he is my bestfriend. Aj is a senior at UNC in Greeley and although I don’t get to see him as much as I want to we still remain close and have fun every time we get to see each other.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I absolutely love being outside and hanging out with my two dogs Izzy and Jessie. I like to camp, fish, ski, go boating and race RC cars.
