James Tolton, Staff Writer

With a year of Intro to Journalism behind him, junior James “Jimmy” Tolton (he/him) is eager and prepared to excel as a journalist for the 2021-2022 school year. As one of two junior staff members this year, Tolton is a highly valued member of the team, particularly because of his strong passion for writing. He enjoys English and science but is especially fond of Journalism. Tolton finds the course invites a lot of freedom and self-sufficiency into one’s work, which is something he values. One of his goals for The Scituation this year is to focus more on catering to different audiences with his pieces while still being able to comment on topics that interest him personally. 

Outside of school, Tolton loves to play basketball. Along with the goals that he has set for himself on The Scituation, Tolton also hopes to play more basketball on the varsity team during this school year. In the future, he even aspires to be a chief marketing officer for an NBA team, making him a very motivated and determined individual.

Students at SHS describe Tolton as respectful and cooperative, as well as kind, helpful, and well-rounded. This year, he hopes to bring a lot of himself to his stories. Tolton is highly enthusiastic about kicking off his writing career this fall, and he can’t wait to see what this year will bring.
