The associate editor of Brigham Young Magazine, Carri P. Jenkins, has been appointed assistant director of BYU’s Public Communications Department. Jenkins fills a vacancy created when Brent Harker was named director of that department. Jeffrey S. McClellan has been hired as the new associate editor for the magazine.

Jenkins began working at BYU Today in 1983 as the assistant editor. During more than 11 years with the magazine, she edited the news sections, wrote features on topics ranging from teenage suicide to high fashion at BYU, was promoted to associate editor, and helped guide the magazine through its transition to the current format as Brigham Young Magazine.
