Ramona Pierce (she/her) is the submissions editor for The New Edu and a SANE liaison. Ramona has been a part of KSVT since freshman year, when she co-facilitated a town hall for school board candidates in her area, and published her first piece on the Student Voice Forum (precursor to The New Edu), an exploration of performative online activism in the era of COVID shutdowns and Black Lives Matter protests. Since then, she has continued to contribute to various research and storytelling endeavors across KSVT. In 2022, she was appointed as a liaison between SANE and KSVT and as the submissions editor of The New Edu. She is grateful for the community she has found within the organization, and is happy to serve on KSVT's team of self-designated leadership. Ramona is a senior at Danville High School in Boyle County, KY. Outside of KSVT, she captains her school's quizbowl team, works as a cashier and babysitter, and is part of a student team researching peer relationships. She enjoys backpacking, music, reading, writing, spending time with her friends, and exploring natural attractions found across KY.
