McIntosh Trail

Jackson Stone
Freshman Jackson Stone, who has always lived in the Atlanta area, is a first-year staff writer. Jackson attended Crabapple Lane and Booth before coming to McIntosh. He is enjoying the school although he said, "It's much bigger than Booth." Jackson is an accomplished student already, building an impressive résumé, including playing piano for the past four years, participating in the Backgammon Club, Student Voice, and Beta Club at Booth while simultaneously maintaining an A average and playing recreational soccer and basketball. He's a big sports fan, following the Hawks and Falcons closely, but he makes time for all the major league teams in Atlanta. His favorite football player is  fan- favorite wide receiver Julio Jones, and his favorite basketball player is the legendary former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. Jackson joined the Trail staff because of his love for writing; he eventually wants to write screenplays for Hollywood blockbusters in Los Angeles or direct films. In fact, Jackson has already begun writing screenplays in his free time, and he knows a professional screenwriter who helps Jackson edit and improve his screenplays. He hopes to attend the University of California - Los Angeles or Georgia Tech in four years. His most enjoyable trip occurred a few years ago when he traveled to Alaska with his family; he was stunned by the wildlife and the isolation in the state and says it is probably the most beautiful place he has been. His favorite food is tacos, so it's no surprise that his favorite restaurant is Chili's. Jackson looks to bring a fresh perspective, the perspective of a freshman, to the Trail this year as a young writer.
