Staffers of the Week: Zoe Bertrand, Shannon Reilly and Emory Wellman

Well, it’s that time of the week again. Each week we recognize a staffer who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. This week, the honor goes to three former abroadies who were sorely missed while they were away. Congrats Zoe, Shannon and Emory!

Why did you earn staffer of the week?
I made an exceedingly attractive garf for the cover.

The photo computers. Lol, just kidding, it’s probably getting to spend so much time with the awesome people who also work for The Hoya.

Where did you study abroad?
Pune, India.

What is the best part about being back on the Hilltop?
Seeing all my friends again! And I’m taking some really cool/interesting classes.

If you could be a character from any TV show which one would it be and why?
Eliza Thornberry. She can talk to animals!

 shannon

Name: Shannon Reilly
School: College
Year: 2015
Major: Psychology
Hometown: Sparta, N.J.
Position on the Hoya: Contributing to copy section

Why did you earn staffer of the week?
I earned staffer of the week for staying at the office far into the night with the other wash-ups helping out with the first production night back from break.

What is your favorite part about working for The Hoya?
My favorite part about working for The Hoya is the wonderful people I get to work with and hang out with while I’m here. (I also have a love-hate relationship with the abundance of super unhealthy snacks that are always in the office.)

Where did you study abroad? 
Copenhagen, Denmark.

What is the best part about being back on the Hilltop?
The best part about being back on the Hilltop is the energetic atmosphere on campus and the Corp chai lattes that help me keep up with it.

If you could be a character from any TV show which one would it be and why?
If I could be a character from any TV show, I would probably want to be Lily from “Modern Family” because she always comes up with the sassy one-liners endearing to family and fans alike, but doesn’t seem to have too many responsibilities – that would be the life.

emory

Name: Emory Wellman
School: College
Year: 2015
Major: Government, Biology and History minors
Hometown: Boxford, Mass.
Position on the Hoya: Contributing Layout Editor, formerly Senior Layout Editor

Why did you earn staffer of the week?
Frankly, I’m not really sure… I came up to the office bearing Pop-ems, laid one page which then had to be redone when stories were switched and helped Kennedy (Layout Deputy) with some logistics. My main accomplishment was decimating a bag of ginger cookies.

What is your favorite part about working for The Hoya?
Definitely the people. And the elusive but oh so rewarding feeling of submitting the paper by deadline.

Where did you study abroad?
I was at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland!

What is the best part about being back on the Hilltop?
Wisey’s Oreo cookie cookies and getting to see everybody who I have sorely missed over the past four months.

If you could be a character from any TV show which one would it be and why?
Captain Kirk from “Star Trek: The Original Series.” Fearless leader, melodramatic, snazzy dresser, popular with the opposite gender and emerges from (almost) every situation unscathed. Most importantly, he gets Spock and McCoy as his BFFs.
