Jerilyn Garrett, Editor

Jerilyn Garrett is a senior in her third year at Shawnee State University, majoring in English/Humanities with a concentration in Communications. After working with various forms of media like writing and photography throughout high school, she knew this was the area for her to study because of her enjoyment in the creation and spreading of ideas. Once graduated in the fall of 2022, Jerilyn plans to pursue a career in the mass media or publishing field.

Writing for the Chronicle has allowed Jerilyn to improve upon her writing and learn more about the hidden world around her. She has not only gained experience related to her major, but also became a more confident writer. As Jerilyn loves to create, she hopes to utilize that love and transform it into a tool to help inform others about important events and concerns that affect many locally and nationally. Her areas of interest are specifically campus and community issues or events, but she is open to other areas as well. Serving as Editor, Jerilyn strives to learn about the unseen parts of journalism.

Outside of her scholarly life, Jerilyn is from the small town of Peebles, Ohio and has known of Shawnee State University since she was young as she attended the Children’s Learning Center for preschool. Her education has come full circle as she will have both begun and completed her education through SSU. In her free time, Jerilyn enjoys reading, practicing photography, and being with her friends, family, and dogs.
