At Bernard Zell, we believe in empowering our students with curiosity, compassion and courage shaped by Jewish values. Our students talk about about courage—the courage to take a risk, to see another’s point of view, to speak up for yourself—and for others. Alumna Eliza Lampert ’20 continues to exemplify all of the above and beyond with her budding career as a journalist at The Latin School of Chicago.
Entering her junior year this fall as Editor-in-Chief for the school newspaper, Eliza writes about topics ranging from the impact of COVID restrictions, gender-neutral rights and spaces, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, credit inequality between artists and athletes, Roe v. Wade and everything in between. She has won 4 Best of SNO awards, an Honorable Mention in live News Writing at the Journalism Education Association and National Student Press Association and 2 Latin Forum Prizes for Best News Commentary and Best News or Feature Story focused on Latin School.
