Inklings News

Kacey Hertan
After reluctantly enrolling in Journalism as a freshman, Kacey Hertan ’16 knew that it would become a passion of hers, “as soon as I wrote my first article I knew Inklings was something that I wanted to be involved in,” Hertan said. This Massachusetts native has spent her three years in Inklings as a business manager, where she sells adds and manages the budget. In her free time, Kacey stays busy as the captain of the Diving team, which she started participating in freshman year after never being on a diving board before. Aside from being an impressive athlete, Hertan is the president of the Key Club, the oldest community service club at Staples. While she enjoys covering a variety of stories, her favorite to write is features. More specifically, the unique people that she has met writing her Humans of Staples piece has been her most rewarding Inklings experience.
