LINCOLN UNIVERSITY– Journalism student Kalon Grover was elected by the students as the 18th Mister Lincoln on Tuesday. Grover, a senior journalism student from Chicago, sat down with The Clarion Wednesday to discuss his new title and life at Lincoln University.

The Clarion: What inspired you to run for Mister Lincoln?

Grover: Due to me being a student athlete with a busy schedule, I really never got the opportunity to get involved. This felt like the perfect time to get involved, especially with the football season being cancelled.

The Clarion: What was it like to campaign?

Grover: It was pretty stressful because everything had to be virtual. It forced me to get creative, which is something I struggled with.

The Clarion: Tell us about your time at Lincoln.

Grover: I transferred here during the fall semester of 2018. I’ve been involved in football and the journalism department. I’ve been on the dean’s list since I’ve been here.

The Clarion: What are your duties as Mister Lincoln?

Grover: My job is to be a voice for the student body.

The Clarion: What legacy do you hope to leave as Mister Lincoln?

Grover: I want people to come together and really be the family that LU has always been known to be.
