    **Farewell Letter**

    So... this is it. This is my last post as your editor-in-chief. I know that it's not as big and flashy as I would've wanted it to be, but I just wanted to keep it simple. This is for everyone who has been in newspaper. 

    It's been an honor to work with each and every single one of you. I look back on what was my freshman year of newspaper, and every single month I am astounded by the quality and quantity of the articles that we published. It doesn't matter if we're a paper that publishes once a month, or once every few months--what matters is the dedication of our staff. And given my standards, and how I had to work out the kinks of a system that could sometimes be bogus, it's amazing that everyone who participated had that level of patience. It only goes to prove my point: you are a fabulous newspaper staff. We couldn't have built this newspaper up so fast in so little time if we didn't have you guys.  

    All of you have an enormous amount of talent! I was surprised by the level of maturity that each one of you put into your pieces, as well as fluency in grammar and diction. Not only that, but it was easy to detect your passion. I hope that each one of you takes writing courses in the future, because if there's one thing that we've all learned, it's that writing is a skill--a valuable skill. 

    The future seems a little uncertain now, but I'm confident in your abilities to work together as a team and continue producing newspapers. You'll have to talk to Mr. Gonnion in regards to getting editorial access to the site, but that shouldn't be an issue. All I have left for you guys is the editor's handbook, which I have posted on the site. I wish the best of luck to Maria Stathopoulos, who will be taking over my position in the next year.  

    Once again, thank you all for joining and writing for this newspaper. I wish for the success of the team, but more importantly, I wish for your happiness. Remember: these four years don't last forever; it's up to us to make the most of them. Just by looking at you guys, I know that I've made the most of mine.
