The Evanstonian

Zachary Bahar
My name is Zachary Bahar, and I am an Executive Editor of The Evanstonian overseeing the amazing News and In-Depth sections. This is my fourth year on staff, and I have previously been the News Editor, Copy Editor, Assistant News Editor, Assistant Copy Editor and a Staff Writer. Outside of The Evanstonian, I am a captain of the Scholastic Bowl team and a member of the Math Team. I also enjoy cycling, playing golf and tabletop games. Lastly, I love fantasy and sci-fi, particularly J.R.R. Tolkien. Seriously, please talk to me about Tolkien.

Zachary Bahar, Executive Editor
