Hey! My name is Blake Catlett, I am a senior, and this is my fourth (and final) year serving on the Digest! This year, I will be serving as Editor. I spend a lot of my time outside of school with either music or writing. On the weekends, I serve at Maple Street Biscuit Company on Gunbarrel Road. After I graduate from Central, I hope to attend either Yale, Northwestern, or Caltech to become a chemical engineer. I hope that you all will enjoy the stories we put out this year!
