Grace Hedlund, Head of Social Media and Marketing

Hi! My name is Grace, and I am a senior at Etowah. As my fourth year on the staff, I am the Head of Social Media and Marketing for The Talon. I am a part of Etowah’s Varsity Sideline Cheer and Varsity Dance team! I am also a competitive dancer at Steppin’ Out Performing Arts Center. I love writing for the newspaper and cannot wait for another amazing year of articles.
