Two Chico State seniors, Risa Johnson and Cortnee Uriz, will lead The Orion and next fall.

Johnson, who is from Ridgecrest, California, will be the paper's next editor-in-chief. She has worked on the staff as a news and features writer, fitness columnist and features editor.

Johnson has also had internships at two magazines and an Italian radio station and maintained a travel blog while studying abroad in Viterbo, Italy, this past academic year.

"I want to make The Orion feel like home for people like it has been for me and continue building on the growth of my predecessors, who have been such incredible role models," she wrote in her letter of application.

The Orion's next advertising manager will be Cortnee Uriz, a business administration major from San Ramon, California.

Uriz has managed the Electric Lounge Tanning Salon in Chico and was a sales person for Beauty Source in San Ramon. She is a member of Alpha Phi International Fraternity and has worked as a volunteer raising money for the Oakland Children's Hospital and the Chico cardiac care unit.
