Editor's Notebook: Only Memories

Editor's Notebook: Only Memories

Image
I am sitting here wracking my brain trying to find the right words to share. Ideas are swirling around one after another, individual memories of this school year trying hard to make themselves the dominant image. All of them are equally important though. And all of them are thanks to you, the supporters of your community college’s newspaper.  

There have been some glitches along the way, but that is okay, because people make mistakes. It was the overwhelmingly positive encouragement you’ve given to your newspaper that keeps us going. We work to be better at what we do because you’re always there for us.  

The Tamarack is more than printed words on paper; it is everything that you make of it. The quest for equality, the need for awareness and community engagement are a part of this newspaper, because they are a part of you, the reader.  

So, I sit here trying to find words to express all the incredible experiences I got to share with you. Experiences I hope I have been able to turn into words, so that others might share in them as well. But this time, words simply won’t come, only memories.  

This is how I will end this semester for The Tamarack. Lost in memories and offering an open recruitment for new writers. Your voices are important, and they are needed. If you’re interested in a career as a writer, being published in The Tam is a great first step. You’ll work with an awesome team of fellow writers and editors. You’ll build skills and techniques and discover talents you didn’t know you had. You will also be an influence in a way you never thought you could be.  

Don’t be afraid to knock on the door of room S519 in the Prism Lounge if you see me (pictured above), or anyone else in the room. It’s a pleasant duty to talk with students and faculty about ideas to include in our newspaper, or just to get to know people who want to express their reactions to the articles we feature.
