Sofie Kennedy, Executive Editor

My name is Sofie Kennedy. I am a senior and an Executive Editor for The Evanstonian. I oversee the Arts & Entertainment and Sports sections. As a junior I was the Arts Editor, and as a sophomore I was an Entertainment Writer. My main focus is equitable coverage across my sections throughout the year. Outside of The Evanstonian, I play for the varsity girls tennis team, am a peer leader for Wildkit Buddies, a member of the Mock Trial team, and foster puppies. Next year, I will be attending Northwestern University with a major in biology.

‘I feel so lucky to have been able to experience him as a teacher and friend’

Sofie Kennedy, 2019-20 Executive Editor September 10, 2020
I’m so proud to be able to say that I was a part of something so special at ETHS. When Mr. Lowe retired, I was saddened that I wouldn’t be able to learn more from him. As a senior and one of the Executive Editors, I wished he had been there to see my growth and hoped that he was proud of everything our staff had accomplished since his retirement.
