DayOnna Carson
My name is DayOnna Carson, and this is my fourth year being on the Central Digest! I love reading and making stories of my own, so I am glad I got the honor of being Editor-in-Chief of the Digest this year. Over the summer, I was fortunate to be selected for the Princeton Summer Journalism Program, which is a rigorous ten day course dedicated to teaching students like myself the fundamentals of journalism. I hope to lead this year's staff well, and improve our content to my greatest ability.

Dayonna Carson, Editor-in-Chief
