Letter From the Editor

The Lumberjack staff consists of the hardest-working people I know. While many people will say that about their clubs, jobs, family members and friends, I truly believe the people I work alongside in the Media Innovation Center (MIC) are some of the best. 

Their bright minds and assorted personalities are contagious, and I have caught their bug. 

I joined The Lumberjack staff as a writer, hoping to enjoy the art of journalism, but I found so much more: companionship from our entertaining staff, a passion for creativity and an intrigue into the community we report on.

My involvement in the Flagstaff community has only grown, and I hope to never stop the hard work journalism requires.

The newspaper is my livelihood, and I think I can speak for the rest of the Editorial Board when I say the same for them. You can find the majority of the us in the MIC any time of the week, and while we live and breathe in that building, I would say I could not be more content. Working late nights and weekends, we make sure the news we produce is accurate and our best possible work. 

Some may say journalism is dying, or our profession has a falling standard, but the content our staff produces is a direct reflection of our pride. 

And our group has a whole lot of pride. 

I cannot thank our staff enough for the past year, and while a new semester will bring change, I know our staff can tackle anything and keep our integrity intact along the way.
