Olivet College will be welcoming in its four new student media leaders in the Fall semester of 2020. The positions that were filled were Garfield Lake Review editor, WOCR station manager, editor of The Echo, and the newest position, social media coordinator.
Junior and upcoming Garfield Lake Review editor Andrenae Johnson said her position is to be in charge of “how the next (literary journal) edition will be with the help of the students” and their ideas. Johnson said, “Whatever goals they (the students in the department) have will also be my goals.” Despite being nervous at first, she said she is “very excited”, and that she is most looking forward to the “experience” and “improving” the department in general.
“I’ve never been in control of anything before, so, it’s out of my comfort zone,” said Johnson. She also said this experience will help her to “be more comfortable into jumping into big positions” like this one, and that when she got the offer, she just went for it.
