Farewell from current editor-in-chief

April 29, 2010

When I came to Mills as a first-year in the fall of 2006, I knew I wanted to be on the newspaper’s editorial staff. I loved journalism and wanted to positively impact news coverage on campus, but I could not envision just how important a role The Campanil would come to play in my life and how far we as an institution would come. I am immensely proud of the work my staff has accomplished in these last few years. It has been a labor of love for all of us — experimenting with new technologies, missing class when it got in the way of reporting and pulling more than one all-nighter to make sure the latest edition made it to the printer on time. But the hard work has paid off and only made us stronger journalists.

As I step down from my position as editor-in-chief, which I’ve held since January 2009, I am confident in my successor Tara Nelson. She brings enthusiasm, curiosity and intelligence to her new role and I know she will continue to push boundaries and move The Campanil in a positive direction. I thank the campus community for supporting our work and look forward to seeing what next year’s staff will achieve. I hope you do as well.

    Congrats on a long reign as EIC.

    Thank you Jennifer for running the stories on the feral cats at Mills College who were, and probably still are, being villified by Christina McWhorter and Barb Haber. Every animal-loving Mills woman was thankful that you brought light to this critical issue at our college. You made us all more aware of how we need to adopt a humane policy regarding the cats instead of ruthlessly killing them.

    Best of luck in your future incarnations.
