The Hutchinson Collegian is the student newspaper of Hutchinson Community College. We publish approximately 20 newspapers, distributed on Fridays, during the school year.
Meet our Fall 2021 staff:
Brooke Greene, Editor In Chief
Born and raised in Hutchinson, Brooke came straight from Hutchinson High School to Hutchinson Community College to pursue her journalism degree. She later changed course and decided police science was where she belonged. Now involved with Hutchinson Police Department, she spends her free time riding along with her assigned officer and gets a first-hand experience as to what it’s like being a patrol officer. Brooke is a reptile lover, plant guru, first-time mother, and as an aspiring female officer, to her, the sky is the limit.
Laci Sutton, Opinion Page Editor
Another Nickerson graduate, Laci is in her second year with the Collegian staff. She is a first year nursing student at HutchCC. In addition to the ADN program here on campus, she is working with the University of Kansas to get her BSN via online courses. In the little free time she does have she enjoys playing with her niece, Makenzie, spending time with her family, and making fun of her best friend (and our former editor) Tabitha Barr.
Joel Muhs, Sports Editor
Hailing from McPherson, Joel was homeschooled until attending Hutchinson Community College, where he is a journalism major with aspirations to become a sports writer. He enjoys anything and everything that has to do with sports at all levels, but his two favorite teams (amongst many others) are the Kansas Jayhawks and the TCU Horned Frogs.
Zariah Perilla-Best, staff writer
From San Jose, California, Zariah Best grew up constantly writing and became an author in her junior year of highschool. She is now an English major at Hutchinson Community College and is aspiring to teach at university level.
Aubreigh Heck, Online Editor
Aubreigh Heck started at Hutchinson Community College in 2020 after moving from Las Vegas. This is her first year as a staff writer, and she hopes to become a professional sports writer after all is said and done. After moving on from HutchCC, she plans to become a Jayhawk at the University of Kansas. She is all about the NHL, MLB, and NFL, with her favorite teams being the Vegas Golden Knights, Kansas City Royals, and Kansas City Chiefs.
