Farewell for now
The time to say goodbye is here again. I can honestly say that my experience as Editor-in-Chief of the Erie Square Gazette would have little reflection of happiness if it wasn’t for the people that I worked closely with for the past year or so.
In my position, I did the best I could. Whether it was preparing letters to potential advertisers, figuring out page counts for the upcoming issue, and writing when I could find the time, I have no regrets.
I’ll make this short and sweet, the paper’s advisor, John Lusk, taught me a lot about my position, and mostly, my career as a journalist. If it weren’t for Lusk, I probably would have not been able to keep up with my position. His encouragement and honesty gave me the reassurance I needed to fulfill my position to the best of my abilities.
I would like to thank the staff of the Erie Square Gazette for keeping me on task, helping with distribution and other things that overwhelmed me this year. And most of all, for completing the assignments I asked them to do with little or no arguments. You all made my life a lot easier guys, thank you.
A shout out to the other clubs and Student Government is in order as well. You all have been supportive and helpful and I hope you remember me the same.
And last but not least, our readers. Thank you for taking the time to read our little paper. We couldn’t do it without you.
One day I will return as a guest writer, but until then, I leave you all with a quote from an author that perfectly sums up how I feel about everyone I’ve mentioned in this goodbye.
