This summer break has gone by so quickly. Though I’m sad to see summer end, I’m eager to get back to work on The Slate. The 2014-15 school year will be my third full year as an editor for The Slate, and my second year as managing editor.
I am so proud and lucky to be part of a staff that is able to have a newspaper on stands the second day of school. It was not easy, but through hard work and dedication –which our staff has plenty of –we were able to put this issue together and get it out during the first week of classes.
Ana Guenther, formerly The Slate’s opinion editor, is taking on role of editor-in-chief. We also have several new staff members joining us who I am sure will exceed all expectations. Our website, theslateonline.com has grown tremendously over the last year, reaching a record number of unique monthly visitors for us. I have no doubts that it will continue to grow and supplement our weekly print edition as a constant news source for the Shippensburg campus.
