Evan McDonald, Staff Writer

Evan McDonald is a senior at Boulder High School and a new addition to the newspaper. Born in New York City, Evan moved to Boulder with his family seven years ago. He has a brown dog named Comet. He enjoys rock climbing, video games, amateur woodcarving, and chess. Evan will always play a pick-up game of chess if challenged by a stranger. For this reason, he carries a chess board in his backpack to school every weekday. He is also a former worker of the McGuckins' paint department as well as the Boulder High wrestling team. Evan is an unwavering ally of green grapes after a nasty bar fight with a conniving purple grape. In moments of weakness, however, he will admit that purple grapes taste better as soda and candy flavors.
