The Winonan

McKenna Scherer, Editor-in-Chief

McKenna Scherer (she/her/hers) is the Editor-in-Chief of The Winonan as of spring 2021. Scherer previously held the position of News Editor after having been both a features and news reporter in prior years. She joined the Winonan during her first semester at WSU and continues to report news, photograph and run social media for the newspaper.

Scherer is in her fourth year at Winona State University, majoring in Mass Communication: Journalism and double minoring in Public Relations and Film Studies.

Besides her duties at the Winonan, Scherer also works for the university's Office of Marketing & Communications on the student web communications team as well as at a local restaurant and is active in several clubs, including the Society for Collegiate Journalists, WSU Students for Reproductive Justice (which she often photographs for after helping start the club in the spring of 2020) and PRSSA.

In her free time, Scherer enjoys reading (mostly fiction, plus her subscription to The New Yorker), binging TV shows – primarily from creator Shonda Rhimes – and movies, hanging out with her four roommates and thrifting; she has a thing for knick-knack-y vintage items and t-shirts.

Scherer hopes to move to the Minneapolis or Chicago area after graduation to work in broadcast or print journalism, or for a PR firm focusing on social media content, campaigns and/or influencer collaborations.
