The Comment staff will have a new Editor-in-Chief for the 2014-2015 academic year, as junior Kayla Lemay takes over at the helm.
Beginning last April, Lemay has worked at The Comment as an opinion writer and the General Assignments Editor writing for primarily the news and opinion sections.
Covering a myriad of topics including eating disorders and coping with grief after a loved one has passed, Lemay will continue to bring awareness and clarity toward the issues that matter most to Bridgewater State University students through her position as Editor-in-Chief.
“I’m hoping to make The Comment more widely read on campus,” Lemay said. “I want to make The Comment more relatable to everybody on campus. I want more feedback from readers about what they want to hear.”
Lemay said that while accepting her new position as Editor-in-Chief of The Comment is certainly surreal, she is confidently anticipating filling her new role.
“It’s a little strange to think about,” Lemay said. “But I’m still really excited.”
Lemay will assume the position of Editor-in-Chief of The Comment after its current Editor-in-Chief, Greg Dudek, graduates from Bridgewater State University this May.
Dudek said he foresees only positive outcomes arising from Lemay’s upcoming position as the new Editor-in-Chief.
“Kayla will do an amazing job as the next Editor-in-Chief,” Dudek said. “I have the utmost confidence in her that she will continue the progression of The Comment to new heights.”
