Laura Heckenlaible, Editor-in-Chief

Laura Heckenlaible is a senior, third-year staff writer and Editor-In-Chief for the Statesman. Heckenlaible is in ENHS and also serves as vice president of NHS. When she is not editing stories or volunteering, you will most likely find her running on the bike trails with her best friends who also double as her SFLXC teammates. Besides training and school, Heckenlaible loves going to work where she spends her time making bagels and gossiping with her coworkers. She is always down for cold brew from Starbucks, watching the sunset or a date with her bed and her favorite movie, A Cinderella Story featuring Hillary Duff.  If you see her in the halls, do not be afraid to say hi; she is probably the least intimidating person ever.
