MaryJo Dunham

Frontline: What aspect of Frontline do you look forward to most next year?

I am super excited to get to know all of the Frontline staff better as well as working hard to get the rest of our campus more involved. 

FL: What is your favorite article you’ve written this year?

MD: My favorite article was “Hear Ye, Hear Ye, El Mo’s Athletes of the Year” (College Issue II) because it really challenged my writing abilities, being the longest article I’ve written, and was also a really fun way to bring to light the hard work that Conner and Koutures put in these past four years. 

FL: Favorite #frontlinemoment

MD: My favorite memory would definitely have to be the days that we were going through all of our Frontline Thrift clothes, we found a ton of really odd stuff and had lots of fun and laughs!

FL: If you could give yourself a Frontline award what would it be?

I think everyone could agree that my award would be powerhouse editor because I’m so buff.

 

Aidan Polanco

Frontline: What aspect of Frontline do you look forward to most next year?

AP: I’m really looking forward to working with many new people and doing my best to make Frontline as enjoyable and engaging as possible for students.

FL: What is your favorite article you’ve written this year?

AP: Definitely “Virgil Was Here”. I really love when I can go in depth researching and writing about topics that mean a lot to me, and this one in particular was one I enjoyed spending a lot of time perfecting.

FL: Favorite #frontlinemoment

 AP: My two favorite parts of Frontline are by far roaming around campus with friends to drop off newspapers and concocting the most absurd fringe articles I can think of.

FL: If you could give yourself a Frontline award what would it be?

AP: Maybe an influencer award, given that my primary goal as part of Frontline is to never stop sharing my objectively cool and awesome interests with the rest of the uncultured world. 

 

Leilani Pongco 

Frontline: What aspect of Frontline do you look forward to most next year?

Leilani Pongco: “I’m looking forward to getting to know our new students and getting closer to the old ones, finding new opportunities to increase readership, and working with our new editors-in-chiefs. There’s so much opportunity next year as our final year, and I’m so excited.”

FL: Favorite #frontlinemoment

LP: “Definitely when Jacob was when Mrs. Mull said he sucked at talking, and he still does!” 

 

Jacob Boyd

Frontline: How have your experiences in Frontline increased your strengths as a leader?

Jacob Boyd: I learned how to better talk with people about ways they can improve their work. I also deal with sudden obstacles with more composure now.

FL: What advice would you give to our incoming Editors-In-Chief and why?

JB: Enjoy the grind because your dedication and effort to editing shows in the final product. You should also enjoy teaching people the basics and complexities of journalism.

FL: What will you miss most about Frontline?

JB: I will miss paper delivery days and telling stories and jokes to the class about past journalism days.

FL: Will you two be best friends in college? Why or why not? 

JB: We are absolutely going to be best friends in college and are planning to watch movies together every Friday night.

 

Olivia Frazier 

Frontline: How have your experiences in Frontline increased your strengths as a leader?

OF: My experiences in Frontline have helped me grow as a leader inside and outside of the classroom in work ethic, creativity, and overall creating an environment where everyone feels safe and welcome to express their opinions and ideas freely and without judgment. 

FL: What advice would you give to our incoming Editors-In-Chief and why?

OF: I have too much advice to make word count, but my biggest piece of advice would be to enjoy everything from victories to the most stressful of moments because it goes by in the blink of an eye. 

FL: What will you miss most about Frontline?

OF:I will miss brainstorming and spelling things wrong on the board. I will miss my Frontline Family (you guys rock). I will miss Frontline Thrift stores seeing our Vanguard community come together to support our program. 

FL: Will you two be best friends in college? Why or why not?

OF: That’s a really tough question.
