The JMarian inducts new editorial board for A.Y. 2023-2024

907

I’ve been in dire straits the past few days in setting up the new editorial board of The JMarian. All candidates have impeccable communication skills, making each one of them deserving of the role, especially that of being the chief editor of the publication.”

That is how Mr. Lord Vincent Van Mendoza, the adviser of JMCFI’s college student publication (The JMarian), described his feelings about the grueling screening process of the campus publication.

Following the exhaustive screening process—testing journalism knowledge, taking the pen-and-paper test, and acing the face-to-face interview—JMarian finally installs new members of the editorial board who will be serving the publication for the academic year 2023-2024.

In the final screening process, Mr. Mendoza shortlisted 7 applicants whom he thought would be most fit for the EIC role. On the day of the interview, 2 applicants expressed that they wished not to pursue their intent and the choice was down to 5. Among the 5, 2 were assigned as the news and literary editors.

The new set of editorial board members are as follows:

CHIEF EDITOR: Lanz Lexi Liane Clapis

ASSOCIATE EDITOR: Alexis Reign Colonia

MANAGING EDITOR: Dameille Potente

SECTION COPY EDITORS:

  • News Editor: Nicholuz Marie M. Betoro
  • Feature Editor: Joshua V. Baguio
  • Literary Editor: Kimberly Ann P. Trinidad

CONTRIBUTORS:

Fahdia P. Kandog

Angelica Luardo

As someone who loves writing and connecting with people through facts and discussion of opinions, I am elated to be included in the editorial board of our very own The JMarian. The journey to reach this point was not easy; I even had a mental block when I was interviewed. I was stuck with underestimating and overestimating my capacity, but in the end, when you have an excellent advisor to guide you, you will surely find a position that will fit you. To say that I am happy is an understatement. I am elated, in bliss, you name it. Above that, I also feel humbled to be given this responsibility and to serve the JMarians by delivering not just truthful contents but also ones worth reading“, Dameille expressed.

These successful candidates will have to undergo the apprenticeship phase in the first semester. Scholarship grants await the editorial board members for the second semester. This incentive not only recognizes their dedication and talent but also paves the way for their future in journalism.

Applications for visual journalists such as photojournalists, graphic designers, cartoonists, etc. will have yet to be announced by the new editorial board of The JMarian.
