A chapter completed.
Yesterday was probably the last day in which I will have my core Viewpoints staff from the 2016 Spring Semester all in one room. While some of them will remain with the college newspaper to continue what has been started, others will be moving on including myself. For all stories we have written for the newspaper, the stories we all have with each other as a staff, not only from this semester but from my entire time with the program, are the stories I will remember most. Dare I say, the highs and lows we shared together is a book that could write itself.
None of this would of been possible without my family, who have always supported me. Which is something I was never really able to appreciate to the fullest until I found my passion and career. If it wasn’t for their support, I would be lost. So to Joy (mom), Clarence (dad), Michelle (sister) and Jesse (brother) I say thank you.
To my Viewpoints family (which includes just about everyone I ever worked with), I say thank you. As much as many of you have claimed to have learned from me….I learned just as much if not more from many of you! Just writing this is making me think of the people I have worked with during my time at Viewpoints.
Whether I was the Editor-In-Chief or just a section editor, I strived to be the best leader that I could be and serve as that support system for you guys as you guys were for me whether you knew it or not.
Alexis, Matt, Valerie, Laura, Jim and Luis are just some of the many that have helped make my time at Viewpoints a memorable experience.
Obviously this is not the end of my journalism career, I am just getting started and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if I work with some of you again in the future.
In closing, stay true to your gimmick and never trifle.
