Editor announces new year’s editors

Goodbyes are always hard; they instill fear of what’s on the horizon without those we’ve grown so accustomed to. But they also bring out joy and pride – of all of that those leaving accomplished.

The Knight will be saying goodbye to four extraordinary people, who have been the cornerstone of this year’s hard work.

As The Gannon Knight bids its seniors farewell, it also welcomes the new members of its staff for 2013-2014.

The Knight will be led by Editor-in-Chief, Hiba Almasri, who currently serves as Assistant News Editor.

Her position will be filled by Michael Haas, who has served as a staff writer for the section. Meanwhile, Colleen Langham, who currently serves as the Roundtable Editor, will be serving as The Knight’s News Editor.

Khadjia Djellouli will continue working as Arts & Leisure Editor for another artistic year of theater, concerts and arts. Sammie Janik will be joining our staff as the Arts & Leisure Assistant– replacing April Shernisky.

Shernisky will be moving up the ladder to become the Features Editor for The Knight.

Meanwhile, the Sports Editor position will be filled by Connor Sondel, who has served as a staff writer for the section.

If any one of you readers is interested in joining our staff and writing entertaining stories as Assistant Features Editor or Assistant Sports Editor, please contact Almasri.

We are also happy to introduce Zak Westfall as next year’s Photo Coordinator and Roundtable Editor. Finally, Josh Taylor will remain The Knight’s Business Manager for another year.

We wish all of the 2013 graduates success, fully confident that they will excel in whatever they pursue, and we look forward to a successful new school year.
