Caroline Cooney, Editor in Chief 2016-17
Senior Caroline Cooney is the Editor in Chief for The Patriot and jcpatriot.com. This will be Cooney’s second year on staff and her third year of journalism. Last year on staff she spent her time as an In-Focus Editor. Outside of The Patriot, Cooney is the Student Government Association Vice President, a member of the National Honor Society, and on the badminton team. In the rare moments that she is spotted outside of Room 305, Cooney can be found frolicking at the nearest concert or making a fool out of herself by doing too many peace signs. Rumor has it she can be spotted at the Dunkin’ Donuts in Forest Hill making a mean iced coffee, but you didn’t hear that here. Caroline Cooney can be reached for comments at [email protected]
