Hi, I'm Payton! I will graduate this year with the Class of 2016, and I couldn't be more excited. This is my first year on the Central Digest staff, and I'm looking forward to seeing what this year and class has to offer. I've always had a passion for writing. Ever since I was taught to write, I've been banging out little stories for fun. My plan after high school is pretty aligned with what I love to do now. My dream is to go to Lee University, double major in English/Literature and American Sign Language, and teach high school English and Special Education. I believe this year in Journalism I will really improve my writing, so I'm very excited!
