Notes from the Newsroom: Goodbye and farewell

Jesse O. Walls

As the semester draws to a close, so does my time on the Sentry. I could write a typical column, but with this being the last column I will write for the Sentry, I wanted it to be more personal.

This semester has been a roller-coaster ride, with its ups and downs, and now that the ride is almost over, I want to go back and start it all again. I had the honor of working with a great staff, most of which will continue on into next semester, and a part of me wishes I could continue with this staff indefinitely. Sometimes it is hard to move on when one has made so many good friends.

I also had the honor of talking with several readers of the newspaper. I always enjoyed the feedback I received, whether people were talking about my articles, the articles of my staff, or discussing the website or the multimedia segments, it was a pleasure to hear the thoughts of the readers.

As we head into finals week, I look back now at this past semester and I can honestly say I’m going to miss the collaborations with my staff and the conversations with my readers. It’s been a great semester, but nothing lasts forever.

From my staff to fellow students, even to faculty, so many people have touched my life and made a difference during my time here. I only hope as I move forward that I am able to make a difference in the lives of others as Crowder has made in mine.

To my staff, it has been a tremendous honor to work alongside you. To my advisor, it has been a pleasure to work under your guidance and tutelage. To my readers—thank you.

Goodbye . . . and farewell.
