Community Outreach Director Yinting Huang has been selected to take over the position of Editor-in-Chief.
Huang was chosen to succeed current editor Amy Fan. She will be the eighth editor for the Temple City Voice.
She first started out as a staff writer in Temple City Voice during her sophomore year, and worked as Community Outreach Director this past year.
In addition to her commitment to the Voice, Huang is also the president of the Future Business Leaders of America Club, along with being part of Link Crew and Peer Listeners.
As Editor-in-Chief, Huang would like to expand the paper and reach out to more people, but she also expressed the need to acquire a sufficient amount of resources and funding in order for it to be accomplished.
“I would love to expand TCV, because I think we’re such a great organization,” Huang said. “Unfortunately, I see that many students and members of the community still have not heard of us. I want to reach out to more people and do more with our organization, which has a wonderful mission, but not enough resources.”
She added, “If we can improve our publicity and gather more funds, I am sure that Temple City Voice can grow to be bigger and better. For example, I want to create a Facebook page that gave short updates on what’s going on in the community.”
The news organization’s current executive staff will welcome Huang warmly into her new position.
“I have high confidence in Yinting’s abilities for next year based on what she’s done so far,” said current editor Amy Fan. “I’m sure that TCV is in good hands.”
Senior Editor Vincent Wei also expressed his confidence in Yinting Huang’s leadership.
“I am proud of Yinting and she is the best applicant for this position,” Wei proclaimed. “I am 100% positive that she will be able to take TCV into the next level.”
Matthew Wong, founder of the Voice, equally offers praises for the incoming editor.
“Without a doubt, Yinting will do an awesome job next year. Both Lu [the advisor] and I fully believe in her capabilities and have big expectations for her,” he said.
Huang officially takes over in August as the old executive team transitions to the new executive team.
