Goodbye Letter from the Editors

Thank you, Mountaineer

Luka Konklin- University of Denver (Journalism Studies)

The Mountaineer has been provided me with purpose and ambition and I am forever thankful to this paper.

When I joined this paper, I would have never expected to fall in love with the heavy workload. As an Editor, sometimes managing everything and everyone can be overwhelming, but when you love it, it doesn’t feel so bad, and that is how I knew I could do this for the rest of my life.

I feel accomplished to say that I led such a phenomenal award-winning newspaper.

I want to say thank you to the two advisors I have had. Mr. Matthew Sobrinski, for sparking my passion and teaching me everything I know about running a paper in a professional and enjoyable manner. Also, thank you to Ms. Jessica Appolo for taking the reins at the Mountaineer, picking up slack, and encouraging me to continue to be better.

Also, thank you Ethan for being my right-hand man. I couldn’t have done this without you, you will do great things.

As I excitedly enter the next chapter of my life, I will always remember where I came from and be forever grateful to The Mountaineer.

Ethan Custard- Moravian University (Music and Business)

I still remember when I was drafted into the newspaper. Chilling in Mr. Sobrinski’s creative writing class, he asks to talk to me alone in the hallway. Thinking I was going to get in trouble, I was happily surprised when he asks me if I would like to join Journalism next year. Little did I know how far that one conversation would take me.

I am more than grateful for this opportunity of being Editor-in-Chief this year. Though it can be extremely stressful, this position can also be so much fun. From getting to read and edit so many different stories, managing the newspaper, and getting to do it all with my friends beside me, it has been a wonderful experience.

Thank you Mr. Sobrinski. Thank you Ms. Appolo. This class has left an everlasting imprint on me.

To Luka, it has been an honor being Editor-in-Chief with you this year. I look forward to seeing what you will accomplish as you pursue journalism! Thank you.

Good luck to the Editor-in-Chief’s next year! We trust you to carry on the reins and uphold the mantle of The Mountaineer Newspaper!

Thank you to The Mountaineer!
