As another class of Stallions heads to the graduation stage, leadership changes are coming to the newspaper.
Editor Gerron Green is graduating and going to Georgia Tech. The Stallion newspaper recently held elections and with a unanimous vote, the staff chose Lifestyle Editor Beverly Manning to replace Green, starting in spring 2014.
Manning is a journalism major from Tifton, and has loved writing since she was 14. She is a humanitarian who spends most of her free time doing volunteer work, and helping people in need. It is Manning’s goal to do whatever she can to help change the world for the better.
Manning was the editor of her high school paper, and has written articles for the Sylvester local newspaper. She also has been The Stallion’s lifestyles editor for over a year and a half.
“I have loved being the lifestyles editor for the last year, and I feel this will be a great opportunity for me to make more of an impact on campus. I will do whatever it takes to make more people aware of what is happening on campus and get more people on campus to read the paper,” she told The Stallion.
Manning will assume her position at the start of spring semester. She plans to take the newspaper to the next level, and push everyone to their true potential and, hopefully, make ABAC's newspaper all the better.
The staff at The Stallion believes she will be a great editor and look forward to be able to write for her.
Austin Morris, who has been with The Stallion since the summer of 2013, will be replacing Beverly Manning as lifestyles editor, and is more than qualified. He has participated in numerous writing competitions in high school and has been working under the current editor for nearly 6 months. Morris will continue evolving with the paper to draw in and please new readers.
