Bailey Brantingham
Hi, my name is Bailey Brantingham. I'm a senior at Central and this year I'll be back on the Digest as an editor. I plan to attend UTK next year for college for a major I have yet to decide on. I am nervous starting this year because this position is a big responsibility, and I hope to make the Digest and its audience proud. I am excited to be back on the Digest for my final year at Central and hope to end off on a good note.

Bailey Brantingham, Editor
