Thomas Kenyon: Reporter
May 22, 2023
Introducing Thomas Kenyon! Known by his peers for his admirable reporting and impressive podcasting skills, Kenyon’s first year serving as a reporter for The Cardinal Times was nothing but a success.
After joining the Mass Communications class as a junior, then rising to The Cardinal Times as a senior, Kenyon has worked on a variety of pieces.
“I would say my favorite piece is the podcast, Sports Mania. I spent a lot of time making that with Henry Reuland. I was already a pretty big fan of podcasts so I enjoyed making my own,” said Kenyon.
Kenyon expresses immense gratitude for the community and experiences he gained while working on The Cardinal Times.
“It’s definitely a really good community that I’m really glad to have been a part of,” said Kenyon. “It really reinforced my writing skills and my media awareness. I read a lot more newspapers and online news when I was on The Cardinal Times compared to when I wasn’t.”
In addition to his involvement with The Cardinal Times, Kenyon’s presence will also be missed outside of the newsroom.
“I’m on the Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC) climbing team, which I’ve been doing for a while with some good friends. I’m on the lacrosse team here at Lincoln too, which is a really good group of people. And then I was a flock leader this year, which is also a lot of fun,” said Kenyon.
Following his departure from Lincoln, Kenyon is excited to begin the new chapter of his life in sunny California.
“I’m planning on playing club lacrosse at University of California San Diego (UCSD),” said Kenyon. “I’m also planning on studying chemical engineering to continue my interest in chemistry.”
