What a year it has been! This is officially the last publication of The Quadrangle with me as your editor-in-chief. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure to serve as editor-in-chief for this paper. I love this publication, the people who make it happen each week and the community whom we cover so very much.
I love journalism and hope it continues to be a passion and privilege to work in the news as I continue through college and then venture towards the working world full-time. The things I have learned during my term as editor-in-chief have made me more prepared, more diligent and more passionate about journalism than I could have imagined. And that’s largely because of the people who I get to call my staff.
Nicole, Jilleen, Megan and Cari, thank you for helping me get this paper out each week with its standards, its story variety and its character, which has now stood for almost a century. Anna Woods, thank you for taking me under your wing and always making me feel like I am supposed to be here. Your guidance, encouragement and inspiration has been critical to my success thus far. All five of you women have made my life so much fuller and I will miss us all working on this paper together.
To all of our assistant editors, writers, production team and all those who contribute, thank you for letting me lead. I hope this has been a space where you feel passionate, involved and excited about journalism.
And to our MC community, thank you for trusting me with your campus news.
Now, I hand it off to Jocelyn Visnov, an incredible journalist and two and a half year member of our staff, who will bring back our traditions next semester.
Thank you all. Let’s do journalism!
Kyla Guilfoil, Editor-in-Chief
