Stow pledges to make The Triangle a paper for the students
Issue date: 10/7/05 Section: News
Stow was selected by 28 Triangle staff members who were eligible to vote in the election. She defeated News Editor Sumeet Patel, a senior majoring in history and political science, by a margin of 18 votes. Eligible voters are determined by The Triangle's Constitution.
Stow replaces Chirag Desai, a senior double majoring in electrical and mechanical engineering, who decided not to run for re-election because of other commitments. Desai had been The Triangle's Editor-in-Chief since fall 2004, but was unavailable for comment.
Stow joined The Triangle staff in Dec. 2002 and assumed the title of Wired Services Editor beginning in June 2003. She was invited to join the Editorial Board in fall 2003 and was promoted to Layout Manager, which she created, in winter 2004. She was most recently named Managing Editor in June 2005.
Stow seeks to focus entirely on the University student.
"I want a student newspaper that is for the students by covering issues that matter to students," she said.
Stow plans to introduce redundancy of responsibilities in the organization, which she hopes will help it in times of transition.
"There should be two staff members who know how to do every job," she said in a Sept. 26 meeting.
Even though she wishes for the organization to become redundant, Stow wants "every staff member to feel like a vital part of the organization" and hopes the paper will serve the entire University community.
"I want to have positive relations with everyone and everything Drexel," she said.
"I want administrators, students, faculty and anyone else to know that they can always come to me with concerns, questions or suggestions."
She can be contacted at her e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stow took office Sept. 30 and will hold the position for the Fall 2005 and Winter 2006 terms.
