Cara Roth, News Editor

Senior Cara Roth is a third-year staff member and News Editor of the Brantley Banner Newspaper. Cara has a strong passion for journalism and plans to major in communications once she gets to college. She is also a member of the brand-new Ceramics Club. Outside of school, Cara has a passion for coffee, and she frequents Zanzibar Coffee House. She is an avid bullet journalist and is excited to incorporate this into the podcast content this year as well. As a fervent Disney fan, the number one item on Cara’s bucket list is to travel to every single Disney park on the globe. From the two she has visited so far (California’s Disneyland Resort and Disney World Orlando), she has obtained new coffee mugs for her collection, and she is very eager to hopefully travel to one of the Europe locations next summer.
