By Jennifer Ghekas — Emily Scott, the current editor of Jewell Business Today, graduated on May 16, 2015 with Economics, Mathematics, and Applied Critical Thought and Inquiry (ACT-IN) majors and a Business Administration minor. She will begin working as an analyst at Montage Investments in Leawood, Kansas in the summer. Emily has been writing for the publication since her freshman year, and has been the managing editor since her sophomore year at William Jewell. Emily’s favorite part about Jewell Business Today was, “helping the underclassmen get involved with a business organization on campus. Jewell Business Today is a very inviting organization that anyone can be involved with. As a managing editor, it was really fun to see a list of story ideas transform into articles in a publication.” The writers and staff of Jewell Business Today will miss Emily, and her work and dedication, which have led to a successful past three years for Jewell Business Today.
The new managing editors for Jewell Business Today are Gretchen Mayes and Madison Giles. Gretchen Mayes is a sophomore majoring in Communication and Accounting. She is involved around campus in many organizations including Jewell Communication and Theatre Society, Alpha Gamma Delta, and the track team. Gretchen is looking forward to, “being able to take a greater role in helping to produce a great supplement for Jewell, and being able to network and connect with many alumni and other successful individuals.”
Madison Giles is a current freshman majoring in Accounting, Business Administration, and ACT-IN. Madison is also widely involved around campus. She is a member of Delta Zeta, played for the William Jewell softball team, and is in the Pryor Leadership program. As an editor of Jewell Business Today, Madison is, “looking forward to the friendships and connections with writers and individuals involved both in the Department of Business and Leadership and throughout the Jewell community.” Gretchen and Madison will begin their position as managing editors in the fall of 2015.
