Sticky Header with Highlighting Sections on Scroll

We'll use position: sticky to lock our sticky header to the content container that it's in when the user scrolls. Using a useEffect hook we can monitor the scroll position and determine if the user is looking at a section of our content. If they are we can update a useState hook to highlight it in our nav bar. Finally we'll add a scroll to section feature as well.
