Caleb Slinkard Title/Business: Editor, The Norman Transcript How Many Years: 3.5 years Education: BA in journalism, minor in political science from Texas A&M University-Commerce Accolades: Led the Transcript to consecutive Oklahoma Press Association Sequoyah awards, given to the best overall newspaper in the top OPA division. Multiple TIPA, Texas Press Association and Oklahoma Press Association awards for writing and designing. Community Service: Advisory Council President for Cleveland County Salvation Army. I’ve served on the advisory council for about three years now. What is the role of your title in this organization? The editor is in charge of the editorial content of the Transcript. That means if we print it or post it to our website, I’m responsible for it. Contrary to popular opinion, this does not mean I copyedit every story (although I typically edit copy every day). Neither am I in charge of the entire Transcript. That’s my boss, Mark Millsap’s, job. So blame him. 26 | Quarter 2 // 2019
