We’ve had some fairly significant changes with Ohio State Alumni Magazine over the past few months.
In September, our longtime editor Lynne Bonenberger retired. Having Lynne leave was a huge loss for us. Under her leadership, the magazine was recognized numerous times for excellence. Lynne’s curiosity, keen editing eye and ability to make a pretty good story a great one made the magazine a quality publication. She will be missed, although we are hopeful to keep her involved with the magazine in a freelance writing capacity.
In October, we were pleased to welcome Mary Alice Casey as our new editor. Mary Alice joins us from the Ohio Attorney General’s office where she served as senior editor. She also brings experience in higher ed, having worked at Ohio University as its magazine editor nearly 10 years. Mary Alice is thrilled to have an opportunity to help our magazine expand on its strong base. She has strong family ties to this institution and a great appreciation of what the magazine means to our alumni and friends.
The first edition that bears Mary Alice’s name is our November edition, which is nearing completion. This edition will also adebut the re-design we’ve been working on since early May. My colleague Rick Harrison and I will present a UC Academy on the re-design project next Tuesday. We hope to see you there.
