Matt Jennings, Editor
Matt has edited Middlebury Magazine since 2002, during which time the magazine has won numerous awards for general excellence, design excellence, and editorial excellence. Matt regularly leads editorial workshops at conferences around the country; has twice co-chaired the CASE Editors’ Forum, the largest annual gathering for college and university magazine editors; and is a member of the American Society of Magazine Editors.
Before arriving in Vermont in the fall of 2002, Matt spent seven years in Washington, D.C., working at Sidwell Friends School, where he edited an award-winning magazine and directed a comprehensive publications and alumni communications program.
When not in the office or reporting a story, Matt may be found at Middlebury athletic events (where he is the public address announcer for men’s soccer, men’s basketball, and men’s lacrosse); in the studio of WRMC, where he hosts a weekly radio show with Tim Spears; or, simply, walking around town, his head buried in a magazine. He lives in Middlebury with his wife Katie and son John.
Pamela Fogg, Art Director
Pamela has worked in the field of graphic design for over 20 years, the past 11 of which have been spent at Middlebury. She received her B.F.A. in advertising and design from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. After freelancing her way through design school, Pam was design director at South Street Seaport Museum, where she oversaw the design of everything from a four-color history magazine and a multitude of brochures to banners and T-shirts. Before coming to Middlebury, she worked for Rizzoli Publications with a cadre of artists, architects, photographers, and authors, developing museum catalogs and art books.
Since she began working in higher education, Pam has been involved with the University and College Designers Association (UCDA). She co-chaired 2003 and 2004 Design Summits and from 2005-2008 served on the board of directors and executive committee, and created and chaired a committee on sustainability. She is also a big fan and member of the Society of Publication Designers (SPD).
She is married to web geek Reinhold Lange ’93 and has an adorable teenage son. When she isn’t at the office she can be found maintaining their 125-year-old farmhouse, biking, kayaking, birdwatching, traveling or reading. In the winter she spends a lot of time in hockey rinks devising ways to keep warm while watching the guys coach/play hockey.
Carey Bass ’99, Senior Designer
Carey joined the magazine as a designer in the spring of 2007. As a studio art major at Middlebury, Carey’s focus was on photography, an area of study which has been very valuable in her new venture as a graphic designer. A summer spent at the Rhode Island School of Design piqued her interest in design, so when the opportunity became available to explore that path at the College, she was thrilled to give it a try.
Raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Carey never expected to stay in Vermont after graduation, but after meeting Luther Tenny, a Middlebury native and College employee as well, she reconsidered. Carey and Luther were married in 2003 and live in East Middlebury.
Sara Marshall, Alumni Editor
Sara grew up in Middlebury where her father, Harris Thurber, was a professor of political science, and her mother, Betty Thurber, taught in the education department. Sara edits the “back-of-the-book,” which includes Class Notes and the Pursuits and Book Marks departments.
