The Head Editors for
2023 - 2024
Hello! I’m Ace Clarkson, a senior boarder at The Madeira School, from Elizabethtown, Kentucky. GATE has been a personal passion of mine since I joined the staff. I love that it gives an opportunity for everyone to have a voice in a campus publication. Everyone deserves the chance to show their skill and points of view, and I’m glad to be part of the team that facilitates that! I like our community readings, like Anti-Valentines Day, where everyone can share their voice and unique reading styles. As the Editor-in-Chief, (or Headitor,) I work with the Editorial Team to select and polish pieces that showcase the talents and perspectives of the Madeira community.
Hey everybody! My name is Olivia Girson, and I am a junior boarder from Chevy Chase, MD. I have been a member of GATE staff for the past two years, and I am incredibly excited to be this year’s head editor for layout. My team and I are responsible for creating the physical version of the magazine. We arrange and configure written pieces with artwork to produce visually cohesive layouts under a general theme. I have always loved this section of GATE because of how we get to experiment with our designs and connect over our love for graphic design. I am so eager for you all to see our upcoming issue!
