Bri Branscomb, Editor-in-Chief

Hi! My name’s Bri Branscomb, and this is my fourth year on staff for The Roar and first year as Editor in Chief. I’m very proud of the material we produce, and am excited to get to spend another year with all my fellow staffers! When I’m not working on newspaper, I can usually be found on stage for theatre rehearsals or looking for something I’ve lost (It happens a lot). I’m excited to be a part of the voice of LHS and will do my best to represent what our school is about. If you’re looking for me, follow the trail of loud laughter, a mess, or look for the purple hair.
