Chandler-Ryan McClurg, Staff Writer

Chandler-Ryan McClurg is a junior at Shawnee State University majoring in communication. He was born and raised in Portsmouth, and while Shawnee State University wasn’t his first college choice, he has made the best out of his situation. During his time at Shawnee State, he has discovered a calling and passion for communication, in part because it has allowed him to truly find his voice and be heard. At only 20 years old, McClurg has made a name for himself as a staff writer for Shawnee State’s Bear Buzz, a newsletter made by students for students. His work also extends into providing a voice for queer students on campus.

When not at school, McClurg is just as passionate about his activities off campus as a poet, actor, musician and drag artist, as well as a member of the queer community. He wants to find a job that makes him happy and keeps his orientation toward justice at the forefront. When McClurg was asked what message he would like to share with the world, his response was, “Live life like a sitcom,” which is the motto he lives by each day.
