The Globe staff of 2016-2017 excelled under the leadership of Emily Renner and Jack Mollin, two of the three Editors-in-Chief for this school year. Their dedication to the paper was shown through their conscientious attitudes and time commitment, both of which made a strong impression on the entire Globe staff.
Emily Renner first joined the Globe staff at the end of her sophomore year, in the position of Assistant Op-Ed Editor. At the end of her junior year, Renner said she had never imagined the possibility of being made Editor-in-Chief but nevertheless she was selected for the position. During the course of her Globe career, Renner has written many memorable articles, frequently collaborating with Managing Editor Rebecca Novick. Recently, they interviewed Fred Berger, an MHS alumnus and producer of the recent film “La La Land.”
Renner cites her role as Editor-in-Chief as one her favorite memories from her time at MHS. The staff felt she had a positive leadership style for the paper during her tenure. Renner wrote her college essay about organization, and she showed a strength in the management side of running the paper, tending to be the one to make sure Managing Editors completed their necessary work. In addition to her strong managerial skills, Renner was also known for her positive and friendly attitude toward all those working on the Globe. Liam Katz, one of the three Editors-in-Chief for the paper in 2017-2018, stated that, “Emily was always that smiling face in the Globe Room that encouraged everyone to show up and get their work done. I am extremely grateful for the time I have spent getting to know her and Jack and working alongside them.”
After her graduation from MHS, Renner will be attending the Villanova University Honors Program in the fall. She has not yet decided on her major.
Jack Mollin joined the Globe at the end of his freshman year, in the position of Assistant News Editor. He went on to become the section head for News at the end of his sophomore year, and attained the position of Editor-in-Chief at the end of his junior year. Juggling being a varsity athlete in both hockey and lacrosse, Mollin was busy during his time at MHS but nevertheless managed to dedicate much of his time to the Globe. Throughout his tenure on the paper, Mollin was one of the most prolific writers on staff, writing at least one article per issue and often being called on to write articles at the last minute. His writing credits include anonymous Op-Eds (including some reflecting opinions he does not personally hold), as well as writing extensive articles on school-wide polls in which he had to make sure to include the variety of opinions held by the student body.
In his post-MHS life, Mollin will be attending University of Michigan and is planning to major in Business.
The Globe staff of 2016-2017 thanks both Emily Renner and Jack Mollin for all of your hard work and dedication to the paper. We wish you the best of luck in your futures and we know you will both go on to do great things.
