Letter from managing editor


Dear Shippensburg,

It is hard to believe the fall semester has come to a close. It seems like we were starting the year last week. But, it has been an eventful and fun semester.

I want to first thank The Slate staff for all of its hard work this fall. Without the staff, the newspaper and the website would not happen.

I also want to congratulate the three staff members who are graduating in December and wish them the best of luck in the future.

I also want to congratulate the rest of the Class of 2012. I wish you all luck in the future. I know you will all make Shippensburg proud as alumni.

I want to single out the three graduating seniors on The Slate staff, though.

Lauren Cappuccio, Danielle Halteman and Christina Pooler — the three of you have made such a tremendous impact on this organization.

To Lauren: You started the copy editor position and we will miss your sharp eyes.

To Danielle: You have done such a nice job with the Ship Life section and always manage to get unique content every week.

To Christina: You stepped into the public relations director position without missing a beat and did a fantastic job at getting The Slate known around campus.

Thanks to all three of you. You helped make this organization what it is and for that, I thank you.
I also want to thank everybody who reads the paper and the website.

I hope everybody has a great winter break and a happy holiday season.

Congratulations again to the graduating seniors and to everyone else, see you in 2013.
