By: Madison Watkins, Editor-in-Chief
Hello, Armstrong campus! I am the Inkwell’s new Editor-in-Chief (EIC), and I am so excited to take on the spring semester with all of you.
After much consideration and with the encouragement of others, I am excited to be selected as the Inkwell’s EIC.
I will continue to uphold the journalistic standards that our publication reveres.
We will continue to do our best to be the Armstrong students’ primary news source, ensure all students have a voice and cover a variety of topics. Importantly, we will continue to hold administrators and academic leaders accountable.
That being said, we need your help covering this wide array of topics! Many students feel that we have lost our sense of community since the merger went into effect. I hope that this paper can incite those that wish to revitalize that sense of community to write for the Inkwell and to share their opinions and stories with our publication.
There are so many topics concerning both our school and Savannah that are worth discussing. If there is an issue that troubles you, or you want to talk about an upcoming event that excites you, don’t be afraid to reach out!
We will continue to have staff members in the office throughout the week so you can stop by at any time that is convenient for you. If meeting in person is not feasible, you can reach out to us through the emails that are listed online at theinkwellonline.com and in the physical paper.
I have been an Armstrong student since fall of 2015 so I have been present for the glory days of Armstrong and have witnessed the rough transition of the consolidation to Georgia Southern University.
I first started writing for the Inkwell in January 2017 and became the Arts & Entertainment (A&E) editor in January 2018. After working as the A&E editor for two semesters, I am looking forward to taking on the helm of EIC.
I am now a senior. I have been a theatre performance major since the beginning of my studies as a freshman. I added journalism and film minors my sophomore year. All of these subjects blended together have really enriched my student experience.
When I’m not working on news stories or memorizing lines for plays, you can find me watching and/or talking about movies, laughing at memes, listening to audiobooks, reading my Bible, making videos or going to the Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM).
If you have any questions, feedback, or story ideas, do not hesitate to email me. I will get back in touch with you as soon as I can.
I’m looking forward to what this semester has in store and continuing the Inkwell and the Armstrong legacy.
