The Central Trend

Ava Tilley

Ava Tilley, Junior Writer

Ava, who likes to be referred to by her last name Tilley, is a junior heading into her first year of writing for The Central Trend. She is an avid reader and writer, as she finds the joy of books often interferes with her questionable ability to pay attention in her classes. She has always wanted a chance to write for The Central Trend and gets immense joy in finding loony tunes and subjects to write about. Often, you'll either find her in the library or the band hallway with her friends, eyes glued to whatever she's found today.
