The Central Trend

Linus Kaechele
Linus Kaechele is a senior entering his second year on staff for The Central Trend, and though he is apprehensive of the current situation, he plans to finish what he started. Aside from writing for The Central Trend, Linus enjoys listening to music and is always searching for new albums to dance to. He's also a member of Improv Central and will talk your ear off about it if given the chance. If you're trying to spot him in a crowd, look for the tall, lanky kid wearing a thrifted shirt, funky pants that don't fit, and an effervescent smile (hidden beneath a mask, of course).


Homes Away From Home: Goodwill, the FHC Auditorium, the Cascade Park Gazebo, and his minivan

Greatest Ambition: Making his mom proud and beating his dad in a game of Scrabble

Favorite Part About Being on Staff: Entertaining the idea that maybe, just maybe his writing will change the world one day—and the people, of course

Favorite Part of Room 139: The legacies left within the four walls and the knowledge that one day his own legacy will join them
