Kris Long, Opinions Editor

Sophomore Kris Long is the Opinions Editor for The Mentor and has been a member of staff since he joined 21st Century Journalism his freshman year.

He’s hoping to establish himself as a leader this year by learning how to manage both writers and content. 

“I think it’s going well so far,” Long said. “I enjoy writing opinions because it allows me to methodically construct an argument rather than just yelling at people.”

Long particularly enjoys political reporting and explaining the political environment in an in-depth way. He also enjoys watching soccer. 

“I think paying attention to politics it important to being a good citizen,” Long said. “[People] can make the right choices when it comes to voting.”

When he’s not working on academics, Long can be found hanging out with friends playing Dungeons and Dragons or annoying his twin sister Meghan.
