The East Texan

John Parsons

John Parsons, Co Editor

I have been a part of The East Texan since transfering to Texas A&M University-Commerce in 2018. I am majoring in mass media journalism and minoring in photography. I will graduate in 2021.

As editor, I am responsible for deciding what stories will be covered and the material the paper publishes. I do not report to or accept instructions from any member of the university; including administrators, faculty, staff or organizations.

I enjoy journalism as it gives me the opportunity to meet many different people and then share information with readers.

I consider “true” journalists to be fair and objective in their reporting. This is one of the guiding principles of The East Texan and the MMJ program.

I am a disabled veteran and a non-traditional student. My experiences provide me with training and skills to look for the bigger picture while covering a story.

Feel free to say “hi” when you see me around campus.
