Bangs: Candis Bryson
Event: Headline Writing
How long you've been competing in UIL: One year in UIL Academics, but I have been in Band since junior high and competed in several UIL competitions for that.
What's the most challenging/nerve-wracking thing about your event: The most challenging thing about Headline writing is only having about seven minutes per headline, which never seems to be enough!
First thing you'll do when you win: If I win, the first thing I will do is ask the announcer, "Are you sure you got that name right?"
Past honors in the event: This is the first year I have ever done Headlines. I received third place at the district meet and second at the regional meet.
Extracurricular activities/other UIL events: I am in marching and concert band, jazz band, Spanish club, National Honors Society, and Yearbook staff, along with several activities outside of school.
College plans: I will be attending Angelo State University to become a teacher. There are several things I would like to teach, but right now, I plan on being a high school math teacher.
Birthplace: Abilene, TXOne thing your parents, a sibling or even a best friend might not know about you: I really do not have any secrets, but many people do not know that one of my greatest fears is complete silence
