Erin Renee O’Kane, a freshman communication arts major from Naperville, designed the cover for the Winter 2006/Spring 2007 issue of The Community College Journalist, the quarterly publication of the Community College Journalism Association. O’Kane, who is the graphics editor of the Benedictine University student publication The Candor, created a filtered image of her iPod to match the publication’s theme, “Podcasting and Pedagogy.” The cover design can be found at http://www.geocities.com/ccjanews/2006.html. O’Kane is the daughter of James O’Kane of Naperville and is a 2006 graduate of Neuqua Valley High School.
