The Lutrinae is proud to announce that Jessenya Guerra will be the Editor-in-Chief for the 2018-2019 year. Guerra joined The Lutrinae in fall 2017 as the Entertainment Editor.
“I am very excited for this opportunity and hope that I only help to grow the newspaper. I absolutely adore The Lutrinae staff and all the work that they have put into the paper this last year. I am also excited for Ashley Orcutt to teach me all that she can about the position before she graduates,” said Guerra.
Guerra is a Humanities and Communication student with a concentration in Journalism and Media Studies. She is from San Luis Obispo, and is a transfer student from Cuesta College, where journalism first peaked her interest.
“I owe my passion for writing to my parents, especially my father. He always encouraged me to write everything and anything down on paper. He is my biggest fan and harshest critic, I can always trust him to tell me his honest opinion. My mother on the other hand has always been in love with everything I’ve written. She has kept every doodle and incoherent poem since I was able to write, and many are still framed in her bedroom,” said Guerra.
Guerra looks forward to the 2018-2019 school year and encourages anyone who loves writing to join her and the rest of The Lutrinae staff.
