Hello GramFam, I am Joshua Edler Davis, and I am proud to serve as Editor-In-Chief for The Gramblinite.
I am a senior mass communications major from San Diego. This is my second year attending Grambling State University. I am a graduate of Grossmont College and am an alumnus of Morse High School in San Diego.
My transition to Grambling was facilitated by getting involved with the mass communications department. The TV Center, KGRM, and The Gramblinite all have the resources for students to create content.
My first experience as a journalist was at San Diego Mesa College, where I worked as a Staff Writer. I was able to gain experience covering local news and writing opinion pieces. After I finish school I plan to pursue a career as a political journalist. I also played one season of basketball while attending Mesa College.
My mother being a graduate of Howard Law School, she encouraged me to consider HBCUs after finishing my associate degree. Grambling State University was one of few schools I applied to and was the first to accept me. After receiving my Associate’s degree in communications, I accepted my offer letter to attend Grambling State university.
My major goal as Editor-In-Chief would be to revive the physical copy of The Gramblinite. This goal can not be achieved alone so I plan to encourage students who aren’t mass communications majors to get involved in student media.
I would like to thank Dr. Ceeon Smith and the instructors of The Gramblinite for encouraging me and trusting me with this position.
