Jackie Poznanski, Editor

Jacqueline (Jackie) Poznanski is a 16-year-old junior at Colonia High School. Poznanski has lived in Colonia all her life. She attended Lynn Crest Elementary School, graduated from Colonia Middle School, and now attends Colonia High School. She is grateful for all the memories and friendships Colonia has provided her throughout her childhood and high school years thus far. Poznanski enjoys many things, such as reading books, watching movies, dancing, and hanging out with friends and family. But most importantly she loves to dance, she has been dancing for about twelve years and continues to dance at the Center for Dance Education in Clark, NJ. The studio she attends has helped her grow a love for dance so much that she aspires to continue her dance education through a college. In addition, she pushes herself to be a straight-A student and continues to expand her academic ability every day. When she is not dancing or at school, she enjoys spending time with her brother and sister or going to the beach with friends and family. Poznanski is excited to continue her journey as a member of The Colonia Declaration Newspaper and hopes to inform her school and community on current events and news.
