The Clerk is pleased to name Hannah Zigler ‘17 as its next Editor-in-Chief.
Zigler, a junior political science major and psychology minor, has contributed to the paper since her sophomore year, serving this past year as its Features Editor.
“I’m honored and excited to be stepping into the position of Editor-in-Chief,” said Zigler. “I’ve really enjoyed my involvement with the paper for the last few years, and I’m looking forward to continuing the incredible work done by Maggie and other past editors.”
During her time as a writer and a member of the editorial board, Zigler has reported on issues including mental health, politics, and race. As Editor-in-Chief, Zigler hopes to continue coverage of “difficult or under-discussed” topics at Haverford.
“I view The Clerk as a tool to begin conversations on campus, particularly when it comes to issues we overlook or have a hard time talking about,” said Zigler. “I hope to expand our coverage to include a more diverse range of voices and perspectives and to continue to run the paper with in accordance with the College’s values of trust, concern, and respect.”
Former Editor-in-Chief Maggie Heffernan ‘16 will continue to contribute to the paper until commencement in May.
“As Editor-in-Chief, I got to learn from and work with a variety of thoughtful and passionate individuals, and I greatly enjoyed the experience,” said Heffernan. “Although I am sad to be stepping down, I could not think of anyone more qualified to assume this role than Hannah, and I look forward to watching the paper continue to grow under her trustworthy leadership.”
