Established 1826 — Oldest College Newspaper West of the Alleghenies

A new era for The Miami Student

A new team of editors takes the reins at the Student this week.

The slate is led by Reis Thebault, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, a Journalism/Individualized Studies major. Thebault will be the editor-in-chief.

"It's both an honor and an immense responsibility," Thebault said. "I've been with the paper since my first days at Miami and I've seen it improve in quality and influence. I'm excited to continue the upward trajectory."

Assisting Thebault will be two managing editors, Emily Tate, International Studies/Journalism, and Victoria Slater, Professional Writing/Journalism.

All three are rising seniors.

The editors plan a number of changes, all geared toward improving community news coverage, starting with a merging of the old "university" and "community" pages.

"There need not be a wall separating campus and community," Thebault said. "But, rather, The Miami Student must reflect the integration of town and college. It is all news. We report for everyone."

Leading the news section will be Krista Savage, Journalism/Creative Writing, Grace Moody, Strategic Communications/Spanish and Abbey Gingras, Strategic Communications/Professional Writing. Emily Williams, Journalism/Marketing, will be helping them out as the assistant news editor.

James Steinbauer, Journalism/International Studies, and Kelsey Maloney, Journalism/Anthropology, will lead the opinion section.

Steinbauer and Gingras, rising juniors, swapped positions.

Grace Remington, Sports Journalism, will assume the sports editor position.

Britton Perelman, Journalism/Media and Culture, is going to take over the culture section, which will begin printing twice a week next year.

Connor Moriarty, Journalism/Comparative Media Studies, as the new photo editor, is in charge of all things pictures.

Architecture student, Kyle Hayden, as design editor, leads a team of three other page designers.

Lastly, Thomas Briggs, a Marketing major, will be running The Student's business operations as business manager.
