Derek G. Xiao ’19 will lead the newly elected 145th Guard of The Harvard Crimson, the organization’s President announced on Friday.

Xiao, a Government concentrator from San Ramon, Calif. and an Adams House resident, currently serves as one of The Crimson’s College Administration reporters. In that capacity, he has covered Dean of the College Rakesh Khurana and the administration of Harvard College, Harvard’s social group penalties, and undergraduate affairs. He is also an Associate Multimedia Editor, responsible for the photos and videos in each day’s paper. Xiao will begin as President on January 1, 2018.

“I could not be more proud of—and excited for—the entire masthead of the 145th Guard, but in particular, the three individuals who will take the helm this coming year,” current Crimson president Derek K. Choi ’18 said.

Natanson, an English concentrator and Adams House resident who hails from Washington, D.C., currently serves with Xiao as a College Administration reporter.

She has broken stories about the implementation of the College's social group policy, gender inequity in the Mathematics Department, and academic dishonesty in Computer Science 50: "Introduction to Computer Science I."

Next year’s Business Manager will be Nathan Y. Lee ’19, a Computer Science concentrator and resident of Pforzheimer House from South Pasadena, Calif. He will take the helm of The Crimson’s finances and operations after serving this year as an Advertising Manager, Associate Design Editor, and software engineer.
