Sydney Dixon is a senior at Central High School in St. Joseph, Missouri, and attended The Washington Journalism and Media Conference in 2019. Sydney plans to attend The University of Missouri in the fall of 2020 and intends to double major in journalism and sports administration. She has been following her dream of being a sports journalist since she was in 7th grade by partaking in several journalism related activities. When she is not participating in student body government, spending her time writing stories for her high school yearbook– which she has been the editor of since her junior year– or watching the Atlanta Braves, she is filming or editing for her school’s video announcements or writing for The Savannah Reporter, the newspaper in Savannah, Missouri. Sydney is incredibly excited to be a member of the Youth Advisory Board and help to make WJMC 2020 the best year yet!
