The Day Is Here


Clara Hillis, an intern of just a few short weeks, slid so easily into The Indy editorial production flow that we were mostly unaffected when summer vacations left us short-handed. Learning that the Laguna Blanca graduate has New York University’s Florence campus in her freshman sights for fall as well as pride in her clean layouts of our complicated calendar section made it all clear: Clara loves a challenge. And when she’s not scaling metaphoric heights, she likes to belt out show tunes in the car, Les Mis vying with Mamma Mia! on her playlist currently. Another test came when she was one of two teens at the Lobero’s Robin Trower concert. Verdict? “It’s rock and roll.”
