Megan Benzing, Hilltopper Editor

Megan Benzing is the Senior Online Editor for the Highlands High School newspaper, The Hilltopper. This is her second year taking Journalism at HHS and is thrilled about the adventures to come for her final hoorah. Though this is only her second year, Megan is not entirely new to the writing world.

Megan has always had the desire to become a journalist in the future. When she was little, Megan wrote all sorts of short stories with index cards that she would store away in bins. For some constructive criticism, her grandma would read over them and tell her what she would need to add for more context and what needed to be removed.

Megan decided to take journalism in 5th grade at Ruth Moyer Elementary, exploiting her creative mind very early on. She continued her writing journey with some real-world practice, becoming a "Budding Journalist" for the Fort Thomas Matters website.

Throughout her high school experience, Megan has joined or taken part in the National English Honor Society, the Creative Writing Club, and, of course, Journalism. Looking towards the future, Megan plans on majoring in Mass Communications and/or Secondary Education English in college.
