The Shakerite

The Editorial Board governs Shakerite opinion coverage, writes routine "Rite Idea" editorials, and serves as a guiding force for The Shakerite on controversial coverage. It was elected from and by The Shakerite Staff in September 2019, after speeches and online voting. Olivia Warren, a two-term board member and current Opinion Editor, was elected Board Chairwoman. The Editorial Board 2020-2021 comprises appointed members Hilary Shakelton (Executive Managing Editor), Lauren Sheperd (Editor-in-Chief) and Olivia Warren (Opinion Editor) and elected members Morgan Fowler (Journalism Coordinator), Danielle Krantz (Web Managing Editor), Anna Krouse (Print Design Editor) and Olivia Peebles (Education Columnist). With certain editorials, other staff or community members may participate in editorial meetings to provide information that may be useful. The Board's editorials, called "The 'Rite Idea," present the views of the editorial board; however, they may not reflect the opinions of The Shakerite's entire staff. The Editorial Board's Charter is accessible here for the public to view.
