Meet the Staff

Editor-in-Chief, Joe Gramigna:

I’m a senior writing arts major with a minor in journalism. This is my third year working for The Whit, and I’ve really enjoyed growing as a writer, journalist and human being during my time at this paper. Whether it’s interviewing interesting characters across campus, overseeing staff meetings or coordinating events with writers, I love staying busy and on-the-move.

Managing Editor, Grace Clevenger:

I am a senior public relations major with a journalism minor. I’m excited to be on The Whit team this year as managing editor. I take great pride in breaking the “Jersey girls can’t pump gas” stereotype and I probably consume an unhealthy amount of coffee each day.

News/Graphics Editor, Amanda,

I am a senior double majoring in journalism and public relations with a minor in advertising. I have a pet rabbit named Mimi, and a dog named Snoopy. I have two brothers as well who are the same age as me- we’re triplets! My favorite show is Parks and Rec because I love Ron Swanson.

Arts and Entertainment Editor, Tara Lonsdorf:

I am a sophomore geology major, with minors in both Geographic Information Science and technical writing. I hope to use my education both in the classroom and on-staff at The Whit to pursue a career in science journalism and combat public misconceptions about climate change. When I’m not avoiding emails, you can usually find me mentoring first-year Honors students, making a mess of the fossil lab, or drawing unfunny comic strips which contemplate whether or not Pop-Tarts are actually sandwiches. (They are.)

Features Editor, Sydney Kerelo:

I am a senior journalism major and English minor in hopes of working within the publishing industry. I am the Features for The Whit, loving every aspect of the industry while also becoming more involved at Rowan. I am obsessed with antique bookstores, quaint cofee shops and yes, I am that weirdo who thinks that books pages are the best smell in the world.

Sports Editor, Jaiden Campana:

I’m a senior journalism major who landed a sweet gig at the Philly Inquirer for an internship. My specialties include: one-pound burrito eating, catching any camera no matter what the situation, and crying during Jets games. Welcome to my life.

Multimedia Editor, Miguel Martinez:

I am a Radio/TV/Film major with a minor in Journalism and Advertising. I have been with the Whit for over a year and can’t wait to continue telling Rowan community stories through our paper. I love telling others story through photos and video. Oh, and I am also Dominican.

Multimedia Editor, Jaryd

I’m currently a senior Broadcast Journalism major here at Rowan. I have interned with Fox29 news and now work there part time as a production assistant. As the Multimedia Editor this year I’m very excited to produce new content that we haven’t done in the past. Also about me personally, I like sports, anything Parks and Rec, and being outdoors.

Copy Editor, Scott Buzby:

Copy Editor, Brianna McCray:

I am a copy editor for The Whit. This is my senior year at Rowan University. I am a writing arts major. My favorite hobbies are walking and running in trails, reading, writing, yoga, painting, listening to music, drawing and playing the acoustic guitar. My career goal is to be an author. My particular interests in writing are the genres of nonfiction, young adult and creative writing.
