Mac Stone, News and Copy Editor

Howdy! My name is Mac Stone, and I am the News Editor and Copy Editor for The Evanstonian, as well as a senior here at Evanston Township High School. This will be my third year on The Evanstonian staff and my second year writing for the news section. Before starting news my junior year, I wrote for feature. In addition to being a part of The Evanstonian staff, I am also a student ambassador. In the future, I intend to continue studying journalism in college.
