Claire Baffes
Claire Baffes is a senior, this is her first year on staff, and she’s very excited to be here. She’s an avid member of Book Club, English Honors Society, Tech Crew, Mustang Comedy, the Marching Mustangs, Pep Band, Chamber Orchestra, Tri-M and more things that she can’t think of. If it involves the fine arts, she’s probably (or would like to be) involved somehow. Outside of school, extracurriculars, and spending most of her time in the music wing, Claire loves to read, hike, and listen to music.
