This week, the Publications committee announced Ram Page Accent editor Lacy Jo Davis will serve as the Editor-in-Chief of the campus newspaper for the 2003 - 2004 school year.
Davis was selected unanimously after meeting with the committee on Tuesday in the Hardeman building conference center, where she was given a final interview with the committee members to clarify her application and her goals for the newspaper.
Davis, a senior journalism major from Salt Flat, Texas, joined the Ram Page staff in the fall of 2001 as a volunteer staff writer featuring everything from Texas country music to campus organizations.
Last fall, Davis became a member of the editorial staff as Accent editor for the publication, offering the Ram Page a keen eye for design, layout and great feature-oriented stories.
With several goals already in mind, Davis says she is ready to take on the position of Editor-in-Chief in the fall.
"I would like to continue the legacy that we have started here at the Ram Page," Davis said.
"I want to continue to use the layout that we are using and want to inspire the new editorial staff to set new standards in reporting."
Upon graduating from ASU next spring, Davis says she would like to continue to work in journalism, offering her future workplace the same things she has offered the Ram Page.
"My hope is to work for a magazine when I graduate," Davis said. "I would like to work in an editorial position, focusing on layout and graphic design."
Davis will replace current Editor-in-Chief, Stacey Leigh Patterson of Odessa, who is graduating with a bachelor's degree in May.
Patterson says the Publications committee's choice to move Davis into the publication's top position places the Ram Page and the student body in a win-win situation.
"I had the pleasure of working with Lacy Jo when I was the Accent editor," Patterson said.
"She was a very reliable volunteer staff writer and I knew from the beginning that she had great potential and she would be a significant part of the Ram Page."
