Committee selects leaders of student publications

The student publications committee selected the fall 2009 Daily Skiff editor-in-chief, advertising manager and Image Magazine editor-in-chief Friday.

David Hall, a junior news-editorial major, was selected for the editor-in-chief position of the Daily Skiff. Hall, who currently works as associate editor, has previously worked as a columnist, reporter and news editor.

“I want to bring more humor to the opinion page because I think that’s important to the college reader,” Hall said. He said his experiences at the paper will help bring insight over the next semester.

“Through all the things I’ve done – opinion pieces, news stories, sports pieces – I know what goes into all sections and how to get the best out of said sections,” Hall said.

The committee selected Lauren Rausch, a junior news-editorial major, for the editor-in-chief position of Image Magazine.

Rausch said she started working in the journalism field in high school as the editor-in-chief and a photojournalist for her high school yearbook.

Rausch, who currently works as managing editor of Image, said the current and previous editors-in-chief of Image have done a good job of laying a foundation for the magazine.

“I want to use the foundation they have created and kick it up a notch,” she said.

Tiffany Raymer, a junior advertising and public relations major, was chosen to remain as the advertising manager.

“We will be having a few changes this semester,” Raymer said. “We are going to have a lot of turnover because a lot of seniors are graduating, and we are also going to be pushing our online sales.”
