WVU student newspaper announces new editors

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The Daily Athenaeum has selected its leaders for the 2014-15 academic year. Madonna Nobel will serve as the Editor-in-Chief, and Carlee Lammers will return as the Managing Editor.

Nobel is a senior Forensic & Investigative Sciences student at West Virginia University. She came to WVU on a scholarship from Sarawak, Malaysia.

Her top priority is to implement a hybrid newsroom with more diverse student-centered content.

“I would really like to reach out to all the student groups on campus, especially the international students,” she said.

Nobel would like to foster a closer relationship with the University through more coverage on the diverse programs, research opportunities and distinguished faculty members.

“I want students to see The DA as the objective informant on this information, so the paper becomes more of a point of interest and reference for our readers,” she said.

Lammers is a junior print journalism student from Middletown, Md. This will be her second year as Managing Editor at The DA, which is generally uncommon.

In her second term, Lammers would like to see the paper continue to grow and explore new platforms.

“I plan to seek new and innovative ways to reach our readers,” she said. “Next year, we are going to put a lot of effort into our online presence. To me, this encompasses a lot of things, including video features and online-only content.”

Lammers wants to feature WVU and the Morgantown area by covering more in-depth features and investigative pieces with multiple components to keep readers picking up the paper for each installment.
