The Pinion

  • What a start for a school year! And it is The Pinion's Centennial.
Thompson Wong
My name is Thompson Wong and I am a senior at McKinley High School. This is my second and last year in newswriting, so I'm dedicated to helping The Pinion grow and be successful. You will be seeing new changes in the design towards the print issues, taking a more modern magazine approach. I enjoy reading and writing in my spare time.  My favorite book right now is "In Sight of Stars" by Gae Polisner, a story about a teenage boy name Klee who ends up in a mental hospital after attempting to take his own life. I love the novel for its accurate depiction of depression, compared to most movies and books that add to the stigma of mentally ill people. Besides newswriting, I am also on the Speech Team, Book Club, and Band. I have an upcoming short film titled "Love Is But A Dream," a love story that's heartwarming and dreamlike.
