Nutmeg Publishing’s 2019-2020 editor-in-chief Madison Busick said she is thrilled to have a positive impact on a publication she loves.
Busick is a sixth-semester digital media and design major with a concentration in business strategies. She said she is looking forward to helping the entire UConn class with her work.
“I have always really enjoyed working for Nutmeg, and being editor-in-chief would give me the opportunity to do even more with the organization,” Busick said. “This position also gives me a chance to have an impact on the greater UConn community.”
As editor-in-chief, Busick will work with their internal staff and with external university-based groups to create content for the yearbook.
“Basically, I will be in charge of overseeing the staff and our publications as well as interacting with outside groups like other student organizations, university administrators and our publishing company,” Busick said.
Busick’s love for working on yearbooks began when she was the editor-in-chief of her high school yearbook committee, she said. When she came to UConn, she was a photographer at Nutmeg for two years and became photo editor her junior year.
As photo editor, she enjoyed the leadership element and knew she wanted to be involved with the executive board, she said. She applied for editor-in-chief because she knew the importance of having a returning member be in control.
“I hope that my experiences with Nutmeg so far give me insight into what does and doesn't work, and that I can continue the work of previous executive boards to improve our organization,” Busick said. “I think the fact that I have been a part of so many positions within Nutmeg already gives me a unique perspective into what the staff needs.”
For next year, she is most excited to spend her senior year working on the senior yearbook for the class of 2020.
“As next year will be my last year at UConn before graduating, I am excited to be able to leave a legacy at the university and have an impact,” Busick said. “I can't believe these past couple years have gone by so quickly, and what better way to document my senior year than overseeing these publications?”
