After a slow first year, the Johnson University Royal Scribe is beginning a new chapter with a new staff.
Eleven students met Thursday to learn more about working for the Royal Scribe, Johnson University’s student publication.
“The Scribe is an opportunity for students to participate in campus life and take part in Johnson’s history,” said Matthew Broaddus, advisor to the Royal Scribe. “It is also an opportunity for students to practice gathering and reporting information.”
The Scribe staff will be covering events on campus and of interest to the students, staff and faculty at Johnson University.
Perspective staff members were introduced to Johnson freshman journalism major Abbey Whitaker, who will be serving as the Scribe’s Editor-N-Chief.
Whitaker told the students she was exited to see so many participants.
“Being on the Scribe will help you in so many more ways than you can imagine,” she said.
Broaddus agreed that a student publication is an important part of campus life.
“Faculty members who have been here for many years have told me this is one of the least documented periods in Johnson’s history,” he said. “We want to make sure that isn’t the case.”
