CNMA students Hannah Gentry and Claire Jones have excelled at pushing Satellite, HBU’s student-run arts and culture magazine, into new territory during COVID. Despite the limitations of online collaboration, Gentry and Jones, co-editors, have led the staff to produce meaningful pieces on the way COVID has affected sports, video game culture, music, and more. They have also accomplished a major overhaul of the website.
Claire reflects on her experience with Satellite: “As one of the Co-Managing Editors of Satellite, I have been privileged to see the world through the eyes of the contributors. This position has helped me to grow, not only in leadership and team building skills, but also as a person who can understand faith, art, culture, and their intersections better.”
Hannah shares: “Being the Co-Managing Editor of Satellite has given me the opportunity to help lead a publication that explores our identity in relation to art, culture, and faith. Through Satellite, I have been able to grow as a writer and to experience the editorial process from conception to completion.”
Professor Bearden Coleman also observed that “The passion and skill Hannah and Claire bring to leading us is inspiring, not only to me but to other students as well. The skills they are demonstrating here in this environment tells me they are both well equipped to excel in professional settings upon graduation.”
