“His ideas about inclusiveness and broad representation of constituents for Denali will produce a literary magazine that the college and public community can share with pride,” Rick Williams Dean Division of the Arts said.
Thomas has been a student at Lane since Winter term 2014. He started working for The Torch as a reporter in Spring term 2014 and expects to be able to continue writing for The Torch as his schedule permits. His passion is literature and writing.
“He’s a dependable and self-motivated student who has a sense of academic adventure: Denali will benefit from his leadership,” Susan Carkin Division Dean LCC said.
Thomas has a particular appreciation for impressionism, surrealism and post-modernism. He likes the way they bend reality, time and space.
“Denali has done some amazing things in the past, but I am really excited to see the art and the writing that is submitted throughout this school year,” Thomas said. “I can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Three other people applied for the position. Two failed to turn up for the media commission interview, and one was disqualified for not having the required three credits at the time of applying.
