Jonathan Stafford, Features & Insights Editor

Jonathan Stafford is a junior at Boulder High School this year. This is his second year with The Owl. He has always liked writing and sharing his opinions. He looks forward to sharing his thoughts and opinions with the Boulder High community. When not in school, Jonathan enjoys playing basketball and baseball, hanging out with friends and family, and thinking about politics. He feels that journalism is a great way to educate the general population while expressing his own opinions. One debate he feels passionate about is the grape debate. When it comes to this debate, he feels that green grapes are superior to any other type of grape.
