Holly Bill, Head Editor in Chief

Holly Bill is a senior at Harrisonburg High School and Head Editor in Chief of the Newsstreak. This is, sadly, her fourth and final year on staff, and she’s not looking forward to leaving this publication behind. However, she’s more than ready to get out of the Burg and into the world. Holly will be spending her senior year running and swimming in addition to attempting to manage college applications. Her updated list of favorite things includes Smith Mountain Lake, “Lord of the Rings,” power naps, Vanilla Coke, “Shake It Out (Glee Cast Version)” and her younger brother.
