Hi, my name is Savannah! I am a senior and this is my third year on the Central Digest Staff! I am the Editor-in-Chief for the Digest and I would like to be a writer when I grow up! I would also like to be in the Pride of the Southland Marching Band at the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!). I am currently the youngest Color Guard Captain at Central! I'm so excited to be on this staff!!
