Lydia Sommer
Lydia Sommer, PV Only Editor
Lydia Sommer is a senior at Pleasant Valley High School. It is her first year working for the Spartan Shield and she serves as the PV Only Editor. While you may find her pursuing her passion in writing, you could also find Lydia doing her other passion: running. She competes on PV's cross country and track and field team as a four-time varsity runner, where she has run at the state level numerous times and is a highly decorated athlete. Besides running, Lydia is a devoted student who spends her time enjoying honors and AP classes and volunteering wherever help is needed. She also loves listening to music, watching movies, and sunsets. However, keeping a creative and sharp mind is something Lydia also thrives at; she frequently questions ideals and ponders the uncertainties of the world. Lydia is excited to bring her artistic ideas to the Spartan Shield this year!
