The Wildcat

PetralieJo Wurtz
PetralieJo Wurtz, a junior at Warsaw High School, has not just an interesting name, but an interesting life story. Adopted when he was two years old, Wurtz left his orphanage in Russia to start a great adventure with his new family in the United States, which is something that he still feels excited about even after 15 years.
Valerie and Lawrence, his adoptive parents, raised this boy, who describes himself humbly as “not much of a writer,” but a passionate photographer who likes to walk around and capture the movement in his surroundings with an explorer soul.
“You can make a whole essay out of just one photo,” he said.
Wurtz has worked for The Wildcat newspaper staff in WHS since his sophomore year. He delivers bold pictures that reveal that he is not afraid of going to unusual spots to get the perfect framing.
Wurtz even claims with a smile on his face that he has no fears, but a lot of dreams. He wants to go to college, study the law and join the highway patrol to take good care of the drivers in Missouri. From reading the bible to running and kayaking, Wurtz collects all of these moments: both in his head and his camera.
