Student Newspaper Seeks Applicants

KCC Board of Publications Formed
Seeking Student Editor and Reporters Now

Kaua'i Community College has formed a Board of Publications (BOP) that will oversee all student publications on campus. "This is an exciting time for our campus," said Ian Ross, BOP Chair. "We must fill key positions as soon as possible, including the student editor, to begin both an online and printed publication of our revitalized campus newspaper, Ka Leo 'o KCC, this semester." All students at KCC are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must be registered, full- or part-time KCC students. Positions include: editor, reporter, assistant advertising manager, and photojournalist. Job descriptions will be sent to all interested applicants upon receipt of their letter of interest. Send resume or letter of interest to kccbop@hawaii.edu before midnight, February 25. Screening will begin Wednesday, February 29, at 12:00 noon in Room 207 of the One Stop Center.

There are five voting members of the KCC BOP, which will screen the applicants and select the voluntary positions. BOP officers are all students and include: Ian Ross, Chair; Taylor Stanton, Vice Chair; and Crystal Cruz, Secretary/Treasurer. Two directors, Carol Bain and Richard Randolph, complete the newly formed board. The charter and bylaws were finalized by the founding board and subsequently approved on January 10, by Chancellor Helen Cox and her designee, Vice Chancellor James Dire.

This board will provide administrative oversight to all KCC student publications. The first hard-copy printing deadline will be set once a printing company is contracted by the recently formed KCC Board of Publications.

Kaua'i Community College is offering two writing intensive courses this semester, News Writing and a Newspaper Lab, taught by Carol Bain. One goal is to support a regularly published campus newspaper and the students who take these courses will be asked to contribute news stories for publication. Any student at the college who may wish to contribute writing for publication, including news, feature stores, poetry and short essays, may be considered.

The 1/25/12 KCC BOP approved job descriptions define the student positions and duties as follows:
