The Central Trend

Caroline Kuiper
Caroline is in her senior year and second year on staff, and is one of three Editors in Chief. In her junior year, Caroline was the Financial Advisor and also specialized in layout, winning the MIPA award for the number one layout in any magazine that year in the state of Michigan. She currently is captain of the varsity swim team and captain of the varsity rowing team. She is also Student Council VP of her school and a member of National Honors Society. In addition, she has participated in the RAYS swim club, her school’s Model UN program, her local Kids Food Basket board, and volunteers each Sunday in a nursery for two-year-olds at her church where she also attends their youth group. Caroline’s loves of writing and people come together in her role on The Central Trend staff. Next year, Caroline will be attending the University of Alabama and majoring in nursing. She will also be writing for the online forum "The Odyssey," and you can continue to read her work at theodysseyonline.com


  • Favorite thing about being on staff: the people

  • Favorite type of story to write: columns and editorials

  • Extracurriculars/Sports: swimming, rowing, National Honors Society, Student Council

  • Hobbies/Interests: being with friends and family, music, being with kids, watching and playing sports, traveling and exploring new places

  • Favorite book and why: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak because it’s unique narration and lovable characters going through an interesting historical period make the story impossible to read only once.

  • If it is Friday night, you will most likely find Caroline…: hanging out with her friends at home or at a sporting event
