Salutations! I am Grace Miller, the editor-in-chief for the Lantern. I am heavily involved in FFA, speech, and my job as a barista, but my true calling is cherishing factual news sources, delving into American scandals, and appreciating corn. When I have free time, I play with my poodles. They also like scandals.
