The Clerk is pleased to name Maurice Rippel ‘19 as its next Editor-in-Chief, and Ellen Schoder ‘19 as its next Associate Editor.
Rippel, an intended English major and Education minor, has served as Features Editor. Schoder, an intended History major, previously served as News Editor.
“I feel truly blessed to be taking over as Editor-in-Chief of The Clerk,” said Rippel. “I look forward to working closely with Ellen and the rest of my editorial board.”
Rippel takes over from Hannah Cregan Zigler ‘17 and Schoder from Ben Horwitz ‘17.
“Maurice and Ellen have been strong, creative, and intelligent voices on our editorial board,” said Cregan Zigler. “Although I am sad to be stepping down, I know Maurice is the right person for the job, and I can’t wait to see what he and Ellen do with The Clerk over the coming year.”
“It has been a privilege to work with Hannah to help shed light on some of the issues facing the Haverford community,” said Horwitz. “I’m so excited to see how Maurice and Ellen lead our strong team of returning editors and writers into the next year. I have no doubt that their ideas, drive, and earnest reporting will continue to push The Clerk towards filling a crucial role within our community.”
Rippel said he hopes to increase The Clerk’s visibility over the following year and cover more public events. Schoder added that she would like to continue to publish in-depth series each month that will allow the newspaper to highlight issues important to the student body.
