Several members of The Progress team stepped out into the real world on May 10 as they graduated from Eastern Kentucky University. Editor Jamie Vinson, managing editor Gina Vaile, Accent editor Christina Cathcart and former editor Jennifer Rodgers all left Eastern’s spring commencement with diplomas in hand and the eagerness to embark on their careers in journalism.

Cassondra Kirby, former news editor, will replace Vinson by taking over the controls of The Progress as editor. Katie Weitkamp, former Around and About and The Studio editor, will step into the position as managing editor, replacing Vaile.

Tracy Haney, former copy editor, will take over Cathcart’s old position as Accent editor.
