Addison Cross, editor in chief

Addison Cross is a senior, finally. Her last moments at Texas High will more than likely be spent stressing over her new position as editor in chief of the Tiger Times, a job she shares with her two best friends, Anna Grace Jones and Molly Kyles. Additionally, Addison tends to overwhelm herself with stress regarding theatre, where she is excited to perform and give her final curtain calls. Her hobbies outside of school include reading the news religiously, listening to the Cabaret soundtrack on repeat and watching more horror movies than what is probably considered healthy. When not dying under the crushing weight of taking all AP and DC classes, Addison can probably be found alone in her room watching the movie Zodiac for the fourth time that week or scrolling the headlines on the Associated Press app.
