Hello everyone, my name is Oscar Lopez. I am a co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Tornado Press.

Having written vigorously over the course of my life, I knew that I wanted to be a part of a school paper once I got to high school. It was to my great disappointment when I realized that BETA didn't have one of its own. Thus, with the support of friends and teachers, Tornado Press became a joyous reality rather than an illusory dream in 2016.

This year, Tornado Press has gone digital with the help of SNO. This has helped us stay current, cost-effective, and accessible. I'm also very pleased with my staff this year and I know that you'll love what they have to offer.
