Hello and welcome!
We are so excited to see you all back for the fall semester. As we start to settle in, we are simply elated to announce the 2022-2023 E-Board. They are eager to see and read your art, poetry, and prose. Be sure to stop and say hi if you see them around campus!
Megan Gardenhour: Editor-in-Chief (EIC)
My name is Megan Gardenhour and I am the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of the Reflector. I am a senior English Secondary Education major with a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies. Oddly enough (not surprising to those who know me), I am a double Cancer with my Sun and Moon signs. I cry a lot.
Speaking of crying, I love watching anime! My favorites are Haikyuu! and Attack on Titan. I’ve been a member of the Reflector for 4 years now and my favorite part about it is seeing the enthusiasm and passion for the Open Mics and Launch Party. I’m most looking forward to meeting the incoming freshmen and encouraging others to believe in their own writing.”
Emily Dziennik: Associate Editor
I’m Emily Dziennik, and I am the Associate Editor of the Reflector this year! I’m a junior English Secondary Education major with a minor in Creative Writing. I have been part of the Reflector for 2 years.
I’m an only child, but I have a 10-year-old dog named Dexter who I adore. I also consider myself a bit of a book collector and I have over 200 books in my personal library. Some call it hoarding, I call it preserving knowledge…
My favorite part of The Reflector is that we get to create a space to appreciate art from students on our campus! So often the arts are overlooked and forgotten, but we ensure this space always exists to share the wonderful and diverse work written within our community. This year, I am most looking forward to meeting new people! I am always excited to welcome new members and help them get involved with this awesome organization.”
Alaina Conaway: PR Chair
“Hi! My name is Alaina Conaway, and I’m your PR Chair for the ’22-’23 school year. I’m a senior English major with a concentration in professional and creative writing, and this is my second year in the club.
Because I am elderly at heart, I love baking and embroidery. I also love to mention that I have an armpit tattoo any chance I get, so feel free to inquire if you see me around campus.
My favorite part about this club is getting to know people through their creative pieces. I think sharing your poetry, prose, and/or art is a major display of bravery, and I’m eager to experience it firsthand!”
Hannah Cornell: Treasurer
Hannah is a junior English major with a concentration in professional and creative writing. She also has a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies and is a member of the Wood Honors College. If you see her around campus, please give her a warm welcome!
The first Reflector meeting will be held on Thursday, September 1st at 3:30 in the DHC Fishbowl. We hope to see you there!
