Hiiii! I'm Syra Lundergan and I take on the role of managing editor for The Central Times. I am a senior entering my second year on this wonderful staff. When I originally sent my application to our newspaper adviser, Mrs. Sherrard, I had no idea everything that this program would have in store for me. Opening myself up to this opportunity is arguably one of the best decisions I made in my high school career.

If you knew me in middle school, reading and writing were definitely not things I considered my forte. I dreaded english class, english tests, and all that fell in between. The Central Times instilled a newfound passion for literature and media that carries heavy on my heart. As of late I would consider myself an avid reader, and writer of course, some of my favorite books being Men Without Women, Credence, and The Inheritance Games series.

I am so excited to work on expanding our school presence and broadening the student outreach this year! Outside of newspaper, I am also involved with cross country, track and field, Pep Club, and I co-op in the main office here at CHHS. With that, in my free time I really enjoy running, swimming, hiking, and everything that comes with being outdoors.

One of my goals this year is to challenge my writing abilities and indulge in topics like pop culture, mental health, event coverage, and more. I hope to present you all with positive, informative, and sincere content year round. Go Bruins!

Harper Lewis attended GSP at Centre College for the June 18-July 22 session. Lewis focus areas were communication and social theory. When everyone had told me GSP was going to change my life, I didn’t believe them, but after I attended, I realized they were all right, Lewis said. GSP allowed me to feel more comfortable and confident in who I am, and allowed me to meet some of the most amazing people who have now become my best friends. Her favorite memories include playing sand volleyball every night and the group lock-in on the last night.
