Samantha Welch

Samantha Welch’s passions include editing, dogs and memes — in that order. As an English major, Welch has worked at The Jambar for four years and has made her way from an arts and entertainment journalist, to assistant copy editor and finally to head copy editor. Along with The Jambar staff, she has won regional honors in the Society of Professional Journalists Region 4 Mark of Excellence Awards conference. When she is not hiding in her office working on stories, editorials/homework or looking at memes, she is hanging out with her awesome Jambar coworkers or scheming for ways to get another dog. But above all else, Welch loves her family (her dog, Bella, included) and friends and is a proud Youngstown State University student. #YandProud
