As a senior, Caroline's back for her third year as Digital EIC. If you ever catch her outside of school, she'll probably be running with the cross country team, volunteering with NHS, playing with the orchestra, trying to get first-graders to sit still for piano lessons, mailing donuts to her friends, or sneaking in a nap. In the future, she hopes to major in statistics and economics somewhere on the east coast and one day venture to the bottom of the ocean.
