The next editor-in-chief of The Commuter will be Jill Mahler. Mahler, a staff writer for the LBCC student newspaper, was appointed Wednesday by the Student Publications Committee to lead the newspaper staff during the 2011-12 school year.
Mahler is from Sweet Home, where she served as editor of the high school paper. This year at The Commuter she has written a variety of stories, primarily news and feature stories.
Mahler will succeed Justin Bolger, who will conclude his term as editor-in-chief with publication of the last issue of the school year on June 1.
Mahler is working toward earning her transfer degree at LBCC before enrolling in the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon.
