Congrats to new Student Media leaders

In Arbutus, IDS, Pub Board on March 30, 2013 at 1:22 pm

Friday was the spring meeting of the IU Student Media Publications Board. I sure am glad that the board decided to keep up the tradition of Texan editors. Congratulations to the new leaders of IU Student Media. Bios below are from a School of Journalism web report.


Heyleigh Elmore, 2014 Arbutus editor

Hayleigh Elmore, junior from Irving, Texas, has been appointed editor of the 2014 Arbutus yearbook. Elmore has worked as an Arbutus design and calendar editor for two semesters.Among her goals is to shape the image of the book by modernizing the graphic design. “I love yearbooking. I’m addicted,” Elmore said.





Max McCombs, summer 2013 IDS editor

Maxwell McCombs, senior from Austin, Texas, has been named the editor-in-chief of the summer 2013 IDS. McCombs has worked for the IDS for nine semesters and has held a variety of positions, including sports editor and managing editor. He said he plans to develop a Web-based mentality this summer with a goal to increase live-tweeting to supplement and improve print content.

McCombs said that becoming editor-in-chief is his last challenge at the IDS. He graduates in August.




Mark Kiereleber, fall 2013 editor

Mark Keierleber, senior from Newcastle, Wyo., will follow McCombs as the fall 2013 of the IDS.

Keierleber has worked for the IDS for four semesters, but also served as editor-in-chief of Northwest Trail, the student paper of Northwest College in Powell, Wyo. Keierleber said he is most excited to be able to work with a top collegiate newspaper staff. He said he wants to focus on improving multimedia content and promotion, such as more frequent posting of podcasts online.

Congrats to the new editors, and best of luck to them in the following weeks as they begin to build their staffs.
