Readers of the Mace & Crown,This week the Mace & Crown editorial board will pick a new editor-in-chief. This is a huge undertaking. The editor-in-chief of the Mace is equivalent to a president, treasurer and secretary all in one position. Derek Page and James Porter II have applied for the position and are prepared for the great undertaking. Both gentlemen hold positions on the editorial board and are qualified to become EIC. Their interviews will be held on Thursday and the decision will be announced on Friday. I wish them luck in the interview process.There have been several new additions to the staff that need to be announced. Aaron Roland has been selected as copy assistant. He will learn AP style and grammar techniques from the current copy editor. Dominique Bailey is the new Arts & Entertainment assistant editor. She will aid in creating the story list for the section as well as take part in the editing process. Anthony Brown is the new Graphic Design assistant and will learn the ins and outs of the paper’s layout.We are co-sponsoring advertising with CSCE to help advertise the March of Dimes. See the ad in the paper for more information. CSCE is holding their third annual March of Dimes event on campus. It will be held March 22.We have also begun working with the Norfolk SPCA donating our left over papers to be recycled into litter boxes, bedding, etc. We appreciate that the SPCA gave us the opportunity to find another use for our papers.
