When The Herald interviewed Mr. Tony Long, we found out some stuff about Hillwood from the 1950s to 1960s, when he was a student at the school. Tony attended Hillwood from kindergarten until seventh grade, when his family moved to Los Angeles so his dad could work at the LA Times.
During his years at Hillwood, Tony hung out a lot with his friends in the yard. Tony also quoted that "students these days are less afraid of their teachers," meaning they have a friendly rapport with them.
Right now, Mr. Long works at Wired.com as the copy chief. One of his favorite parts of his job is working with nice and smart people.
During the interview, he gave us some advice about being a writer and some ideas about what to write and how.
