The Forum

Peter Jones
Peter Jones (21)  is a senior at Latin and is ecstatic to be serving as Editor-In-Chief for his second consecutive year. The Forum means everything to Peter: through it, he has made countless new friends (and made a few people angry, as well) and has had the privilege of hearing some truly awe-inspiring stories. In April 2020, his piece on the Paycheck Protection Program was featured in both Crain's Chicago Business Magazine and The New York Times. Peter feels the primary responsibility of The Forum is a firm commitment to telling the true story of Latin, in its unpolished, organic state. He is forever grateful that Latin has such a space for students’ opinions to be listened to – not just heard. In his free time, he plays baseball, cycles, and, of course, he loves to write.
