Legacy News: Summar C. Sparks joins as Editorial Assistant

Legacy is happy to announce that Summar C. Sparks has joined us as our new Editorial Assistant. As we speak, Ms. Sparks is preparing to defend her dissertation, “Bound by Paper: Nineteenth-Century Southern Editors and Their Northern Connections,” at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. She brings experience working as an Assistant Editor at College English, and we are very happy to have her.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Amber LaPiana for her superb contributions as Legacy Editorial Assistant over the past two years. As her term draws to a close, she departs the journal in order to become Senior Editor for the education website noodle.com. We thank her for her excellent service and her brilliant editorial eye, and we wish her well as she begins her career.
