Laura Kennedy, one of the two Editors-in-Chief at The Oxford Student, has today resigned from her position.
Kennedy, a Law student at New, is currently rusticated but is due to sit her finals next term. Versa understands ill-health was the reason for her decision to quit.
Kennedy was editor for the duration of the Christmas vacation, and two print issues of the publication were produced under her editorship.
The shock move leaves Alys Key, an English student and second-year at Somerville, the sole Editor-in-Chief of the publication. Should there be a replacement Editor appointed, the interview process and appointment will happen on Monday, with the new editor’s photo taken shortly after.
OUSU President Louis Trup declined to comment, claiming that he was unaware of the situation. We approached Kennedy for comment before publication.
Versa wishes Laura all the best for the future.
