Executive Editor Miles Munkacy ’20 shared similar sentiments.

“Karly was the clear and obvious choice to be Editor-in-Chief next year,” Munkacy said. “Aside from her prolific writing efforts, Karly has also been the first to speak up in editor meetings and has done a great job organizing our writers during class periods. I know that she will take The Gator to new heights under her stewardship.”

For her part, Hamilton is looking forward to taking on the position.

“It has been a great year in the newsroom and I’m so proud of everything we accomplished,” Hamilton said. “Camille, Caroline, and Miles have done an exemplary job of leading The Gator and I can’t wait to follow in their footsteps.”

“I can think of no one more qualified or deserving of Editor-in-Chief,” Cherney said. “Working alongside Karly this year was a pleasure. I am confident that she will be a wonderful leader next year.”

“Over the last two years, Karly has demonstrated not only incredible interviewing, writing and reporting skills, but also incredible leadership,” Cutler said. “As Managing Editor this year, she played a pivotal role in helping the newsroom reach new and greater heights, and I look forward to seeing how the paper will continue to grow with her at the top of the masthead. I’m very proud of her, and I’m deeply honored to get to see her and her team produce high-quality work.”
