Augustyn named new editor-in-chief

Jessie Augustyn

The start of third term signifies many changes for The Lawrentian. The editorial board must think of replacements for senior members, and often a new managing editor and editor-in-chief are named. I begin my three-term tenure as editor-in-chief with high hopes and great ambition.

Since I began working on the newspaper almost three years , I have seen many changes take place to improve the publication. I hope to continue these improvments with competent, dedicated staff to help me. The editorial board has undergone several changes. Ray Feller, former editor-in-chief, will now be managing editor. Peter Gillette has stepped down from his position of Opinions & Editorials editor and in his place we welcome Ceilidh Mar, who has worked for us as a staff writer for three years. Lindsay Moore will co-edit the section.

Our News editors remain the same. Jonathon Issacson joined the editorial board mid-second term, and Andy Dolan has been in the position since last year.

Andy York is still our Sports editor, and we continue with Amy Siebels as copy chief, Devin Burke as layout editor, and Julien Poncet as Photo editor. Nick Seigel joined mid second term and will continue as Arts & Entertainment editor.

Our new circulation manager is Susan Platz. Casey Bushmaker is our Web Master, and Tim Schmidt is still Business Manager.

With our current staff, I believe we will produce a high quality publication. As always, we invite all Lawrence student to be involved with The Lawrentian. If you are interested in working on the paper, please email
