Harvard's student newspaper has never had a Latinx president. Until now

Asia's Tech News Daily


In its nearly 150 year history, the Harvard Crimson has never had a Latinx president –until now.

Raquel Coronell Uribe, who is studying history and literature at Harvard University, made history of her own last week when she was elected as the student newspaper’s first Latinx president, according to a statement from the paper published Friday.

She will take the helm from current president Amanda Y. Su on Jan. 1, 2022.

“The 149th Guard is an incredibly impressive group of leaders who are more than ready and qualified to tackle the challenges The Crimson will face in the coming year,” Su said in the statement.

Uribe, who is from Miami, plays many roles at the paper. Aside from covering the police accountability beat, she also works as a social media manager and edits the paper’s daily email newsletters.

“I want to make sure people feel and know there is a place for them at this organization,” Uribe said in an interview with the Washington Post.

Outgoing members in the paper leadership are allowed to participate in the elections, known as the “Turkey Shoot,” and those seeking a senior leadership position need 75 percent of the votes to win, according to the statement.

The Harvard Crimson, founded in 1873, bills itself as the nation’s “oldest continuously published daily college newspaper” and Cambridge, Massachusetts’ “only breakfast-table newspaper.” More than 25 of the paper’s alumni have won the Pulitzer Prize, according to the paper’s website.

Uribe did not immediately respond to USA TODAY request for comment.
