Portrait of Abby DeatonAbby Deaton:

Deaton, a first-year psychology and communications major from Indianapolis, will be the Correspondent news director next year.

Q: Why were you interested in the position?

A: I'm in the Broadcast Media Production (BMP1) class, and we were all sent an email about it. My

professor thought I should take a look into it, because I was showing a lot of promise in class. I went to

one of the recordings for the Correspondent and was actual allowed to direct half the show. I enjoyed it

so much I decided to apply.

Q: What qualifications do you have?

A: I have made four short films for projects in high school as well as various other advertisements for

school announcements. I spend a lot of time on video projects here at school and will be going to

film in Greece and Italy. I am still learning about all the different equipment and the procedures that

go along with news directing, but I'm excited to be working for the program and hope to learn from

upperclassman who have been working on the Correspondent for awhile.

Q: What do you hope to accomplish through your work?

A: The communications department in general is phenomenal, and our news program here is award

winning. Yet very few people on campus know anything about The Correspondent or GCTV and students

in the program work too hard to have no one watch what they create. My goal is to really spread the

word about GCTV and advertise it better on campus.

Q: Some interesting facts about you ...

A: I am also a sprinter on the track team, place cello in Orchestra, and will be an ML next year.

A: Film and video production has been a passion of mine for a long time, so I have quite a bit of experience.

It's what I love to do!

Q: What do you hope to accomplish through your work?

A: I think Abby and I have similar goals for The Correspondent. Basically, we'd really just like to see more

students watching and participating in the show.

Q: Some interesting facts about you ...

A: I love doing anything outdoors, especially water activities like swimming, snorkeling, and canoeing.

work closely with the awesome/crazy process of the paper's construction.

Q: What qualifications do you have?

Lancaster. My internship will give me great insight to how a newspaper is formed, from interviews to

writing to layout. I've also taken several journalism classes here.

Ropp, a junior communication and psychology major from Schaumburg, Ill., will be The Record editor-in-chief

Q: Why you were interested in the position?

A: Editing for the Record is a great chance to develop my writing skills, work collaboratively with peers,

gain leadership experience and open doors for a future career in journalism. Above all, the Record editor

position appealed to me because it is a unique opportunity to use my passion for editing and writing to

shape the paper and make a difference on campus.

Q: What qualifications do you have?

A: Qualifications: Two years of experience at the Record as a Features page editor, contributing writer and

copy editor. I was also co-editor-in-chief of my high school newspaper.

Q: What do you hope to accomplish through your work?

A: My ultimate goal as Record editor is to create a paper that accurately and fairly reports on all areas of

campus life. As such, I will work closely with the editorial staff to brainstorm story ideas that reflect the

many departments, activities and programs affiliated with Goshen College. Each week I will keep track of

the stories that get printed and make sure new topics and opinions are published in follow-up issues. If

a story is written from one point of view, I will be sure to offer the opposing party a chance to respond

to it. (For example, if students are upset with the administration, we need to report on both sides of the

issue). The Record is not a place to fan the flames of tension on campus; rather, it should serve as an

inviting forum for the many voices of Goshen College.

Q: Some interesting facts about you ...

A: I'm about to receive a journalism award from the Indiana Collegiate Press Association for an article

I wrote last semester (but I'm not sure which story it's for or what place I ranked...). In addition to

working at the Record, I love to sing and have been in the Women's World Choir for the past 3 years.

I'm a huge Harry Potter nerd. If I were to be sorted into one of the Houses at Hogwarts, I would probably

be a Hufflepuff. My favorite animal is the narwhal. A friend recently made me a blue stuffed narwhal

and it is prominently displayed on my desk. It is, to put it simply, awesome.

Q: What qualifications do you have?

A: I have been a globe staff member since my sophomore year. I am the morning show host so I am involved with the station on a regular basis.

Q: What do you hope to accomplish through your work?

A: I hope to help more broadcasting/comm majors succeed and develop their passion for the radio as a career. I also want to see The Globe continue to strive to be the great station that I know it is and hopefully see another "Best Station in the Nation" plaque hanging on the wall.

Q: Some interesting facts about you ...

A: I'm obessed with Marilyn Monroe! I love 80's music and movies. My favorite color is pink and until my junior year of high school when I took a TV news elective class I wanted to be a lawyer. When I was little, I would eat green beans and peas straight from the can. Not cooked.
