The Horizon Sun

Hannah Browning, Campus Life Editor

Hannah Browning is a senior in her third year as a part of The Horizon Sun. She is excited to be the Editor of Campus Life again after taking a break from the newspaper during junior year. Journalism is her favorite class because she loves writing, and she enjoys the responsibility as an editor and watching columnists’ writing improve.

Outside of academics, Browning does a variety of activities that seem to have nothing to do with each other because of her scattered interests. She swims competitively for Desert Thunder Aquatics Club (DTAC), as well as the Horizon Honors team. She is involved with leadership for a Jewish youth group called BBYO. Browning is a spirit ambassador for student council, Jewish Student Union (JSU) president, and National Honor Society (NHS) secretary. To fund this active lifestyle, as well as her broken-down Honda named Rhonda, she works as a server at a Mexican restaurant and as a swim instructor.
