Kennedy Torch

Hello my name is Olivia Haefner I'm a senior and this is my 4th and final year being in the Torch family. Freshman year I started out as a writer who had never written or experienced journalism now I'm a seasoned editor. I initially joined Torch because of my love of reading and writing creative stories. Now I'm the co-editor in chief and I love it! I participate in school/club volleyball, basketball, and tennis. I'm also a 2019 class officer and I spend one day a week volunteering at St. Luke's hospital. To say the least I'm busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. One thing people need to know about me is I'm obsessed with my dogs, Moses and Minnie. They are the cutest and I enjoy spending time with them. Keep your eye out for me on the sidelines taking pictures at Kennedy sporting events. That's one of my favorite things to do.
