Hey everyone! My name is Hanna Grass and this will be my third year on The Central Times staff. I am a senior this 2023-24 school year and have taken on the role of Co-Editor-In-Chief with the hope to inspire, teach, and uplift those a part of the Central Hardin community.

Throughout my adolescence, I have found solace in writing. Whether it be creating stories, articles, or poetry, literature has always played a big role in my life. Books such as A Little Life, The Secret History, Normal People, and The Goldfinch have helped this love flourish in their descriptive and unique nature. Novels that touch upon emotional topics or intertwine a heart-pounding mystery hold a special place in my heart, these four being a few of many. That all being said, reading and writing are not my only loves. Watching movies, mindlessly doodling, and piecing together new playlists are also regular pastimes for me, especially when the weather isn't tolerable. Noah Kahan, Frank Ocean, Hozier, Bon Iver, Mac Demarco, and Mac Miller are handful of the artists who rule my Spotify. Whether I am relaxing in my room, doing homework, or driving around with friends, you can almost always catch me with a tune playing in the background.

On days when the weather has blessed me with blue skies and sun, I will likely be spending time outside with friends or family. As an active person and athlete on Central's track and cross country teams, I love to run. Getting my miles in is a key aspect to my daily routine, and on off-days, I love to bike, hike, or go kayaking. My dad has worked in the National Park Service all my life, so learning to love nature in all its forms was vital in my upbringing. I was born in Arizona, but have lived in Montana, Colorado, Florida, and of course, Kentucky. Given my past, I like to consider myself pretty well-traveled. Although, I still yearn to traverse foreign areas like Ireland or Norway to learn more about my family heritage.

In the upcoming school year, I look forward to exploring the inner workings of human psychology, reviewing literary works, highlighting the talented students of CHHS, and breaking the boundaries of what a student publication normally covers. As a returning member of the staff, I understand how much of an impact students and teachers have on what types of content we publish. I encourage you to submit an opinion to our site, or even get in touch with the staff personally. My email is always open and I would love to hear your thoughts! Coming full circle, I have big hopes and dreams for this year as a journalist and am so eager to see where the next year of content takes us.
