Graci Henard, staff writer

Graci Henard is a senior and first-year staff writer. Graci has risen to the challenge of this new extracurricular, the Tiger Times, as well as being involved in varsity golf, NHS, FCA, and formerly, Tiger Theatre. She is dedicated and hungry for success in everything she does, as seen in her many titles: 2019 girls golf District 15-5A Individual Champion, 2019 All-American Summer Showdown Champion, 2019 Sonic Drive-In Champion, and many more. Graci’s success in the classroom as well as the golf course is a result of giving 110% effort in everything she does. If Graci is not studying or on the golf course, you will probably find her playing with her hamster, Peaches, or refereeing between her two sisters, Emma and Abby. Graci is excited for her senior year, even under the circumstances and is eager to write for the newspaper as a way to get information out and to speak her mind.
