Morgan Petronelli is a Warren, Ohio native who has always had a passion for news. From the time she was 5 years old, she remembers sitting down on the couch with her mother to watch the evening news. Since then, her infatuation with the news has grown into an obsession. She believes in helping others and that utilizing her writing skill can oftentimes be the gateway to sparking change. Petronelli is the editor-in-chief of The Jambar, Youngstown State University’s student newspaper, vice president of YSU’s chapter of the Society of Collegiate journalists, a charter member of the Youngstown Press Club and a member of the communication honors society Lambda Pi Eta. When she’s not chasing the news, or flipping through the pages of a newspaper, she enjoys cuddling with her rescue dog Scout, painting and strumming away (pretty badly) on her ukulele in her very limited free time.
