Senior Rachel Szuch was elected editor in chief of The Carroll News on March 19. She will serve for the remainder of the 2009 year.
Szuch, a native of Cleveland, started her career with The Carroll News in the fall of her sophomore year.
She began as an assistant editor for Arts and Life and was quickly promoted to the section editor. Last semester Szuch began writing her column “Such and Szuch” and will continue it into the next year.
Szuch is excited to work with the paper this year.
She said, “I think we have an extremely talented staff with fresh ideas and I’m excited to lead them.”
Andrew Rafferty, the current editor in chief, is confident he is leaving the staff in good hands.
Rafferty said, “Rachel has proven herself as an outstanding journalist and leader in the newsroom.”
She is president of JCU’s chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and a reporter for the Neighborhood News. Last year she interned with Cleveland Magazine.
Upon her graduation in December, she hopes to start a career in journalism.
