• FHC students return to all in-person learning

The Central Trend

Susannah Bennett
Susannah is a senior who is going into her third year writing for The Central Trend. Despite this being her last year in high school and on staff, she is excited to grow academically and personally throughout the year. Aside from being on staff, Susannah enjoys running for FHC's cross country (captain) and track teams (captain) and being involved in the theater program (head of the costume department).

  • Favorite thing about being on staff: the supportive atmosphere and the crazy cool people that are the core of the newspaper

  • Favorite types of stories: Profiles

  • Hobbies/Interests: Running (cross country and track), theater

  • Favorite artists: Vance Joy, Whitney, Lord Huron, Judah and the Lion, Oh Wonder

  • On a Friday night, you can most likely find Susannah: watching movies and eating ice cream with her best pals
