The Hatchet’s staff elected junior Liz Provencher as the next editor in chief Saturday.
Provencher, a communications major and journalism minor, will head the paper’s 115th volume, which begins in May.
The Saco, Maine native currently serves as The Hatchet’s culture editor. She has previously covered Metro news as a reporter.
Heading the culture section, Provencher has led coverage of several campus features, from adderall dealers and street vendors to a graduate student’s photo series exposing sexual harassment on the Metro.
As a former member of the news team, she has covered protests, lawsuits and helped break news when the leader of the Colonial Health Center resigned after a six-month-long tenure.
When she’s not in The Hatchet townhouse, Provencher enjoys exploring museums, going to restaurants and exercising.
Provencher will also take over as president of Hatchet Publications, Inc., pending approval by The Hatchet’s Board of Directors.
The Hatchet is an editorially and financially independent student newspaper serving the GW and Foggy Bottom community. It is the second-oldest D.C. newspaper after The Washington Post.
