Lynzie Wagaman

“Throughout Lynzie’s entire first year at HU, she has embodied innate leadership. She served as a prominent member of the Harrisburg University Esports Club, serving as their Graphic Designer, assisting in running events, and becoming a driving force in growing our gaming community at large.

She has become part of their executive board, taking on the title of Media Manager, and already planning for the next year of club growth. Lynzie has also played a part in connecting the club to opportunities with Hyper X and Evil Geniuses, and taking a hands-on role in engaging potential community members in person and on Discord.

On top of all this, Lynzie has joined the Storm as a Graphic Design intern. She has worked tirelessly to grow, absorb criticism, and make every piece of feedback constructive. She demonstrates an incredible work ethic with rapid response and a deep desire to learn, and has played a big role in assisting with the Storm’s bigger social media efforts.

Lynzie has the makings of a powerful leader in the Esports industry, the roots of which are already clear for people who know her at Harrisburg University.”

Congratulations Lynzie!
