BREAKING: The North Wind board of directors kicks Reed out

North Wind Staff

Current faculty adviser of The North Wind Cheryl Reed and 2015-16 editor in chief candidate and current managing editor of The North Wind Michael Williams were both denied hiring for the next academic year in a 5-4 vote at the board meeting held Friday, April 3.

Current editor in chief Emma Finkbeiner was not allowed in the interview of Michael Williams or in the discussion of his candidacy following due to the ruling of an “executive session.” Finkbeiner is not considered a part of the board due to her non-voting status. The discussion of the rehiring of Reed was not listed on the agenda. 

During Finkbeiner’s interview for editor in chief in December 2014, then editor in chief Katie Bultman was a part of the interview and discussion process. 

A more in-depth story will follow soon.
