Hello to awesome readers of the web. My name is Seth Atkins, and I am a sophomore digital media major here at North Greenville University. I am from the great small town of Inman, South Carolina. This is my second year on The NGU Vision staff, and I am so grateful to be the editor-in-chief (EIC). What I love about The Vision staff is that we get to tell the stories of our NGU family. We strive to grow in the art of journalism by infusing magic with the craft. Alongside journalism, one of my favorite things to do is telling stories with the art of photography and performing on stage with theatre. I love talking to others and hanging out at local coffee shops. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us as a staff and storytellers. See you in the bylines.
Managing Editor (M.E.)
Hello there. My name is Savannah Williamson, and I’m from Walhalla, South Carolina. I’m a sophomore and Managing Editor for this semester’s Vision Media staff. My major is Digital Media, with a focus in Journalism. I’m most excited for being able to showcase how cool North Greenville University is and how the people here are really the best around. Some of my hobbies include costume design and costume creation, anything Star Wars, (Insert various space battles here, maybe a few Jedi and epic music) and Improv (I’ve been making people laugh since 2003, just now I do it for fun). While on the NGU Vision Media staff, I’m hoping to take away a sense of camaraderie and a sense of family from this group. I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year.

Other things I enjoy outside of journalism are hiking, writing music, and reading. I am truly blessed to be a staff writer for The Vision and can’t wait to see what is to come this semester.
Staff Writer & Photographer
Hi friends. My name is Caroline McNeely, and I am a sophomore digital media major at North Greenville University. I am originally from a small town in Spartanburg county called Woodruff, South Carolina. I am new to The NGU Vision family as a staff writer and photographer, and I am excited to see all of the hard work we will produce together. I love being able to tell the beautiful stories that are often hidden within the NGU family, and I get to meet amazing people along the way. There is something about taking a seemingly mundane story and enhancing the inspiration and beauty that was already there. The thing I love most about that is God does that for my own life story and takes the mundane and turns it to something beautiful. Aside from writing and photography, I love spending quality time with people in my life and discovering hole-in-the-wall coffee shops, restaurants or small towns. I am expectant of what God can do through the stories we will tell through the Vision, and my hope is that it inspires our readers all the same.

Hey friends. My name is Mary Margaret Flook. I often get the nickname, M&M. I am excited to be apart of The Vision because it will give me valuable experience in the field of journalism. One reason I love journalism is that it provides an avenue to encourage others, spread truth, and get to know individual’s stories. My desire is to improve on the gift of writing that God has given me, and in turn use it to bring Him glory and push others closer to Him. In my spare time, I love to be outside, take a run, play ukulele, or go on a spontaneous adventure. I also have a heart for the nations and love traveling. I am excited to fulfill the purpose that the Lord has for me while enjoying all the little joys that life brings.
Hey, whoever’s reading this. My name is C.J. Eldridge, and I’m a sophomore studying digital media here at NGU. Born and raised in the Blue Ridge area, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow up. This is my first semester at North Greenville and as a Vision staff writer, and I already love it; getting to learn new things through interviews and going to events is the cherry on top of doing what I love—which is writing. I’ve been writing fiction for six years now. I published my first book a couple years ago through Amazon, titled “Fantastical Tales from Faraway Places.” When I’m not at school, you can find me pumping iron at Gold’s Gym, kickboxing, playing survival horror games and doing crazy stuff with my friends. I ask you to remember one thing before you leave my bio: My one true love in this world is coffee.

When I’m not on campus, you can find me on social media @jacksongosnell where my love of news continues. I post news videos and interviews regularly with some of the most interesting people. I hope you’ll check it out.
Hi, everyone. My name is Karyn Campbell and I have been advising the Vision media since it was first created in 2014. Before that, I advised the Skyliner, NGU’s student newspaper, for several years. I really enjoy working with students and seeing how they change as writers, artists and photographers. It’s very rewarding to see a student editor supervising younger students and remembering when that student first started on The Visio. I started my journalism career as a news writer at the Seneca (SC) Journal way back in 1983. From there I began doing a variety of things, including teaching English in Japan for seven years. I believe student journalists are a very important part of the university community and I am very proud of the work the students do on The Vision website. We publish new stories almost every day during the school year so follow us on Facebook and Instagram to read news, sports and features with an NGU point of view. We also have some pretty awesome TikToks.
