Hannah Etienne, Spotlight Editor

Hannah’s third year on staff is her first year as Spotlight Editor. She spends more time talking to her cats than practicing her flute as a band member. As a senior, most of her time outside of school is spent dancing, playing piano, and talking nonstop about climate change. As Miss Illinois Teen and a member of NHS, she volunteers with her favorite nonprofits over the weekends. Comfortable in front of or behind the camera, Hannah hopes to become a film director in the future.
