Anna Grace Jones, editor in chief

Anna Grace Jones is a senior and third-year member of the Tiger Times staff. Over the last few years, she has managed to climb her way up the newspaper chain of command and will serve as one of three editors in chief, alongside her best friends Addison Cross and Molly Kyles. The trio is more commonly known, or so they’d hope, as Potter’s Angels. She still suffers from an addiction to sweet tea, but admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. In a few short months, Jones will be moving past her high school years and move into the life of a college student. Where this will take place is still unknown, but she hopes to major in business. However, college is expensive, so please grant her scholarships. For the time being, she will focus on her final year of high school and all of the lasts that await her. Jones is so excited for all of the late football games, work nights, stories, photos, laughs, cries and memories to come. For the last time, here we go.
