Meet the editor: Katrina Leibee, opinion director

Katrina Leibee

Katrina Leibee is the opinion director for the 2020-2021 school year. She is a third-year student double majoring in journalism and political science.

She has worked on the opinion desk since the fall of her freshman year, and she has written about many interesting topics and gotten to meet lots of cool people inside and outside of Rocky Mountain Student Media. She loves that she has watched two editors run this desk before her, and she knows opinion will do great things this year because of everything she learned from them.

“(Leibee) wants to incorporate as many voices and perspectives as she can into the opinion section because that is what it is for.”

Leibee’s goals for this year are to publish more letters to the editor and to bring in more outside voices because she is interested in hearing what the community has to say, specifically regarding the upcoming election. She wants to incorporate as many voices and perspectives as she can into the opinion section because that is what it is for.

An interesting fact about Leibee is that she is highly musical; she plays three instruments and has been to a myriad of concerts. She hopes to be able to write for a large music publication or magazine one day or to incorporate music into her career as much as possible.  

She is so excited for this year, and she knows that The Collegian is going to do great things.
